Sooo, this tiny little thing was was picked up two years ago on Lyme Regis beach, the nodule it was in was pretty big and i had high hopes that it contained more than one.

Alas, sadly only this poor little soul was retrieved and with a broken shell too. 

 

Still, I'm pretty pleased with it considering its my first go at prep work and with no sandblaster. i just cant believe it has taken a little over a month to get the little bugger out.

i'm in two mind if i should try and remove the remaining matrix or keep it how it is because it acts and a nice little stand.

 

so yeah, my first little Gryphaea Arcuata:D

I've always felt leaving a little of the matrix gives the piece context.  Looks great!
