I'm looking at purchasing another Keichousaurus for preparation, and wondering what the experts' opinions are on which of these two would be easier to prep for a relative beginner like me. The first one looks entirely covered in shale, and the second seems to be a little more exposed. I have my Paasche air eraser that I was planning on using, although if someone recommends an acetic acid prep over the air abrasive for these specimens for one reason or another, I would love to hear suggestions. If the second one is more likely to be incomplete/damaged than the one under rock, I would prefer to stay away from that. But that being said, if it would truly be easier to work with the one that is already partially exposed, I am all for that!
mattbsharks posted a topic in Member Fossil Trades Bulletin BoardI am looking for hopefully complete or near complete drotops, and other large Moroccan trilobites. In exchange I have lots of stuff, shark teeth from all over, ammonites from Europe etc. please message me if you’re interested
Wasn't 100% certain where to put this, so I figured Q&A was as good a place as any. Does anyone here have access to legit Moroccan trilobite material? Specifically unprepped? Ironically enough, I would actually be more interested in incomplete bugs than guaranteed complete ones. I have never prepped any material from Morocco and would really like to take a crack at it. In a perfect world, someone out there has a source and imports flats of quality material and happens to have a pile of "discards" laying around that they would consider parting with on the cheap. I'm on a budget as I'm trying to upgrade equipment, AGAIN! For reasons that are likely obvious to anyone who is into trilobites, I am super interested in getting my hands on some of the gnarly, spiny species out there. But simply purchasing a display piece lacks the romance of having cried over breaking off spines accidentally during prep! I would do unspeakable things for a Walliserops or Comura cephalon, (or something like that.) Alternatively, I would also be interested in similar bits from Black Cat like Dicranurus. Thanks in advance guys! I know it's a tall order, but it can't ever hurt to ask, right?
