Nice specimens, especially the vertebrae! Your prep results are superb. I am just starting to try to prep and am always looking to TFF to help me as I get started. I am excited to see what else you have in store for us. 

 

How long have you been preparing fossils?

Nice jobs, Sebastian. That croc bone is something special. I think you’ll have to leave the pyrite the way it is. If you try to remove it mechanically, you’ll probably damage the bone and any attempt with chemicals would probably destroy it.

Great prep work! I have a rex bone that I need to prep but still trying to figure out the best tool for prepping it.

Thank you very much! 

I think I got my air scribe about half a year ago and I got my sandblasting machine about 1 month ago. But before I already tried to prep with hammer, chisels and needles. So I am also more or less at the beginning but I learned a lot of other people!

 

Thanks Roger :D At the moment I am prepping another piece with even more Crocodile bones but it can lasts months until I am finished. They are indeed much rarer than Ichthyosaur material!

Thanks for the help with the pyrite. I will leave the rib as it is.

 

Thanks :1-SlapHands_zpsbb015b76: 

 

Thanks :D

 

Thanks!! Wish I would have a rex bone :ighappy: It always depends on the condition of the bone and the stone. But I am sure that many guys here can help you if you take some pictures and post it (if you didnt already did that). Good luck on your prep job!!

 

Thanks @Natalie81! I am looking forward to see your prepped Ichthyosaur vertebrae :D

 

Today I finished two pieces.

Firstly a kinda interesting combination out of an ammonite, a belemnite and a partial Ichtyosaur rib. It wasn't very difficult to prep but all in all it took about 3 hours. The belemnite is about 10 cm long and the partial rib is about 11 cm long.

 

Here is a picture of the unprepped rib:

And here are pictures of the prepped piece:

Nice work! I started the prep, but it will take time. The matrix is very hard , it's a difficult work. Here's a little preview...

Cool Stuff.  How often do you go to the Kromer Quarry.  I have been there twice and not found any bones.  Both times I was with a group of people and nobody found bones. 

 

The croc bone is interesting.  What makes you ID it as croc?   Could it be an ichthytosaur neural spine?

My wife and I loved that quarry too.  Only been there once for a couple hours, and we didn't find any bones either.  We'd go back in a second though.  The ammonites, for us, were unique and wunderbar!

Great job Sebastian. :dinothumb:

 

Now when you find an icthyosaur face surplus to your needs can you prep it before sending it to me :ighappy:

Last year I very often in the quarry Kromer but this year wasnt that good because they only got at the beginning of the season new material. So this year I was about 8 times there and last year about 30 times. Bones arent common but if you know where you have to search its not impossible to find one. Until now I personally found more teeth there than bones. 

I will ask some experts what they think about the bone. Thanks for the hint!

The colors on the ammonites are great or? Although they are a bit flat for me :D
