Flint fossil imagery and preparation

Hi everyone,

 

I'm here to talk about a fossil I found at Møns Klint. It is a distorted Echinocorys? echinoid replaced by flint. Nothing that interesting, you would say. However, on the underside of the fossil there appear to be crinoid cirri-like structures within the flint . Unfortunately, most of the underside fossil seems to be totally hiden by the flint. Do you think I should go and "bombard" the fossil with x rays at an X ray platform, so as to reveal more of the fossil? How can I "prepare" the echinoderm structures to make more of the fossil revealed and visible?

 

 

Thanks for any help.

 

Best,

 

 

Christian
