small shells

I have some small rock samples similar to this. What is the best way to extract some of the shells? Is vinegar safe ? I believe the matrix is coquina.

This looks like moldic limestone where the shells have dissolved away and only steinkerns remain. Vinegar would dissolve everything so I don’t think it would work very well.
