Hello everyone, I have been interested in fossil fishes from the Ordovician- Devonian for quite a while now, and recently I have begun to venture into the field of micropalaeontology a bit more. This has led me to purchase matrix samples from the Harding sandstone and I am also interested in getting some Maple Mill stuff. The problem is I currently only have one more vacant slide to use for these fossils, it was sent to me by @Shamalama with some other microfossils but I don't know where I could get more. The slide has an aluminum case with a piece of thin foam board inside and a glass on top. The foam board has cutout with a grind going from 1 to 64. I was wondering if anyone else might know where I could get some of these as I have not been successful in tracking them down myself. Thank you, Misha
I am in the process of creating a micropaleontology themed artwork., and even after having received a good amount of expert help, I feel overwhelmed by the subject and would like to get more opinions on my composition. The piece will consist of a series of disc-shaped layers, each of which will bear microfossils from a different geologic time period. These layers will be stacked like a roll of coins, so as to look like a drill core. The attached image shows a part of my research spreadsheet, including images and descriptions of each layer. If anyone here has any thoughts on the organisms I have chosen, or how I have portrayed them, I would love to hear! Am I missing any perennial favorites? Is my selection skewed too much in one direction or another? Thanks for taking the time to look, and thanks in advance for your comments!
