Question about Storage of fossils?


Recommended Posts

So I have recently gotten into collecting fossils. Nothing serious, but I really want to make sure I don't screw it up! So I want to ask around and see if I should invest in a nice carrying case? I just keep my fossils in an open wooden box. Usually, they are either in jars or small cardboard boxes with cotton/paper strips for a cushion. I imagine that once I start adding more specimens, there will be a tipping point, and ill run out of space (which is soon, unfortunately). Does anyone recommend a specific product, or should I establish some foam padding in a small plastic container?

I was thinking of using a carrying case people use for DSLR cameras, but that might be overkill; I'm not sure.

I keep them in small plastic bags (craft section of walmart or hobby lobby) each with a locality / ID tag. That isn't really for display though, but for storage.
