Good idea - tomorrow I think I'll go through some Chalk 'washout' matrix, and will post what I find in this thread :) 

Nice Pierre Shale fossils, by the way!

Thanks! Knew it was something I should post, and thought to myself "why not make a new thread in doing so"?

Today I cleaned and glued this one from last Saturday field collect. Another large Macrocephalites sp. It was a good day for ammonites…

Ricardo, I notice you like to display your finds along with your other hobby of vintage tin toys. Sort of a duel show and tell. ;)

Yesterday's take. These are the whole ones minus the 15 or so real little ones. About the same quantity of broken/missing roots not shown.

Largest top left is 5cm.

Sorry, I was too tired last night to do any cleaning so these are my Fossil du Yesterday.

 

Hey that works for me, wonderful set of chompers! :meg:
