I think your little 'verts' may be concretionary.  And the little thing looks like fish scale.

Oh yes! A lot of people outside Kansas don't know much about this state. They think it's just vast sea of wheat and maize fields; which, is true in some parts of the state, but there's plenty of hidden gems and beautiful sceneries.

My Inoceramus sp. and possibly vegetation-like fossils are all washed up and looking better. I decided not to prep any further on Inoceramus fossils, I like it the way it is found. I am planning on gluing together the large pieces of vegetation fossil: they fit together like the puzzles and the smaller pieces doesn't but probably are part of the same fossil.

I regret to report that the 'fish scale' is accidentally destroyed during the prep. I gave it a quick vinegar bath to remove the residue and make the scale more exposed. After a few seconds, I brushed it with a single stroke and lo, it came off and disappeared! It's probably now among the dirty dishes in the sink. :megalodon_broken01:
