I washed up another plate from my dig site in southern Ohio and found two extremely visible trilobites encased. Upon closer review I found nine other smaller trilobites within the plates in varying positions. Along with some smaller impressions. Plate is 25 cm in length and 14.5 cm wide. I'm not sure abrasion is the way to get them out or just leaving them in there is a better way to appreciate the awesomeness. I've never found this many in one sampling. This is the fourth time I've found them at a certain segment of my site. I have one whole one as well that was loose in the soil. I tested the CLR on another plate with nothing but Bryzoa and Brachiopods and as long as the exposure was time controlled I was able to breakdown much of the matrix to and then use abrasion to remove much of the rock.... I'm a little skeptical to do that with this set of fossils. Thoughts?! I get jazzed when I find Trilobites.
