It was a great trip (not sure which one you were, but it was great hunting with you and the others nonetheless).  Also got to meet the famous @Herb.

 

I couldn't wait and so I already cut and polished one of the "Solenopora" calcareous algae heads last night. Here's the result.

Very, very pretty!

That’s a very nice idea. Looks beautiful. I wonder if I should do that to my Prismostylus (aka “Tetradium) algaes of Late Ordovician age as well.

Thanks.  I've never tried it on those, but I bet it would work great.  It would facilitate seeing the internal structure as well as afford an opportunity to make an acetate peel.  I may do it on one of mine.

I have longish red hair. Unfortunately, I very rarely make it to any of the meetings or field trips, but have been a member of the club for about fourteen years.

 

I am glad you have the equipment to cut and polish the algae. I would like to do that with one or two of the specimens that I collected, but I don't have the resources.

Same here.  It's about a 5 hour drive to meetings for me.  It's an outstanding group.  Wish it was closer...

 

Btw, I use a tile saw and various grits of sandpaper followed by a polishing compound for the cutting and polishing.  Nothing fancy, but it works fantastically.
