So my daughter found some shells she is quite proud of finding (she is 7) and wanted me to "clean them" so I scraped most of the surface shale off the shells and exposed as much as I feel I can with simple blades and dental tools (just kinda learning how to do it) but this dark shale is fairly soft and I'm unsure what to do to make it less so? I was reading on here something like the b-72 or 76 to consolidate the fossil would that be the best thing to firm up this shale? And final question if a consolidation is needed where do you get that stuff in canada?
Wood fossil found at the Trent River, near Comox BC, Canada. Trent River fossils date around 80 million years (so I’ve read), interested to see if anyone can identify exactly what type of tree/plant this came from. Have always thought it was bamboo, but I really don’t know what I’m talking about. Please let me know if you need more photos.
Hello, I found what I believe are marine fossils, but I have not been able to identify them thus far. I'm hoping I might find some help here. The photo lighting isnt the best, but I hope there is enough info here to help. These were all picked up in October 2018, on Vancouver Island in BC, Canada. The area is the Comox valley, and found in shale. The fossils found in this region are marine species from the Cretaceous period. Fossil 1: This was picked up along the Trent River, above the Trent Falls (about 150 yards following the river back up stream from the falls). The area is south of the town of Courtenay. It was found with the 'point' down in some harder rock that accompanies the shale formation there. It was loose enough that I was able to pick this out after tapping along the edges with a chisel. The fossil is not wet in photos. The 'point' is smooth, for the most part, and shiny.
