9 year ammonite prep!!!


Recommended Posts

I ran into this ammo again just a month ago or two?   Found this many years ago and put it away cause it was in bad shape!  This thing was in about 4 or 5 pieces and the intire fragmacone along with the appature opening was covered in rock.  i did a bit of prep here and there over the last month or so  and then began to realize that this just may turn out purty good?  It is a bit crushed on the fragmacone but the more work I did on it the better it became!!!    Now its a keeper!!    Im not sure but I think this its spedini?  Fox Hills Formation. Oh, it measures 4.5 inches at its widest points.

Sure is a nice one, Ron. Sometimes it's amazing what turns up when you just keep on digging.

  You know ... you aren't kidding.  I honestly think RB you could just charge to hunt your sheds !  RB Fossil Adventure Tours plastered on a big sign right outside the door.  I bet you'd have rock hounds lining up fer miles around.  You could hire one of those fellas in the inflatable dinosaur suits too. 

 

  Just thinking out loud mind you.

 

Cheers,

PS. Good Lord that is a pretty specimen.

That thing is ugly, Ron.  You should get rid of it.  I think you have my address.  Send it over at any time.  I'll put t with my ugly fossils, that way your shelves won'y get too heavy.  

 

Yup, that's me... always concerned for y fellow fossilers.
