Just wanted to share 2 of my last preparations that I’m particularly pleased with.

Especially the Tornoceras sp. since I was missing a decent one for my collection.

 

 

Manticoceras sp.

Frasnian ( Devonian )

Chimay area ( Belgium)

I've never actually seen a clear goniatite in matrix before, and seeing a clear one for the first time, I'm like "wow :wub:".

I really love those preps, especially the second one. Good job!

Thx for al the kind replies. I just did a little prep job on an other Tornoceras. There is just a little bit of verry sticky matrix left on the bottom.
