Ammonite in phosphatic nodule - what to do?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have an ammonite specimen from Folkestone, UK that is locked in a phosphate nodule. Is there any way for it to be removed?

 

Thanks,

Jay

Yes. But if you don't have any power tools or experience, I would suggest you take it to a preparer who knows what he's doing. Maybe @-Andy- could suggest someone for you.

It would cost you to send this to a prepper. I estimate $40 to send it back and forth. Maybe another $60 for prepping. Are you prepared for that?

 

Also, did you buy this off someone on Carousell?

Nope, I found this myself. I'm also in the UK now so if you have any preppers to recommend that would be great!

If you're close to Lyme or Charmouth they're a few shops that will do it for you, it will cost around £10. However if you go on one of their fossils walks they may do it for free as I've seen them do this for others before.
