Hey all! I am a new fossil collector and I started out by going to the Suedberg site in Swatara Gap, PA, which is part of the Mahantango Formation. I brought some fossils home with me and have heard you can use a 50/50 mix of white elmer's glue and water to preserve the fossils. Obviously this isn't a professional job, but it is cheap and gets the job done. Can I use this mixture for fossils found in shale? I fear that over time they will disintegrate and if I drop them, bye, bye, fossils, which is why I'm considering using the mixture. I am also open to cheap alternatives, although the key word there is cheap (I am a college student).
