Sounds like very nice finds, congrats and good luck with your prep work, looks good so far. That hard stone must be a nightmare, hope you post some pics after you done. :popcorn:

I guess you have some pyrite to contend with as well? Weiterhin viel Glück!

Fantastic stuff, maybe next time you’re there you can take some pictures of the quarry to show us what it’s like to collect there?

Thanks :D I will post pictures of them as soon as I can. At the moment you don't really see that the fish is a fish... It will needs much prep work and I don't think that I will do that in the near future but let's see...

Thank you!! And yeah the hardness of the stone is really a nightmare. Too bad this hard material is the layer were most of the bones are.

Thanks Kevin :) I think I will some days/weeks I finished it. I ordered a stronger air pen, which should arrive at my place in about two or three weeks. Probably I will not be able to finish it before.

Thanks Roger :1-SlapHands_zpsbb015b76: Yeah pyrite is also a problem here but what is also really annoying is a thin layer of bivalves directly above the bone material. I often don't if I am already seeing the bone or just another bivalve...

Yeah that should be enough :D

 

I just took a little break prepping this vertebrae plate and prepped another bone plate. Here you can see it:

I will probably wait till I got the stronger air pen I ordered...
