CenTex Brach with spines perserved


Recommended Posts

I went out to a site near Lake Brownwood here in Cen Texas Penn for a little while this last Saturday. Found one Brachiopod that has some spins preserved which is very unusual for this part of the world. Also found a neat grouping of Brachiopods that cleaned up nice.

Cool to see one with spines still attached.

Nice to find those with the spines still there.  What process did you use to clean and prep?  Nice job.

The spines are nice but I'm particularly enamored with the brachiopod cluster.  You don't find many of those with that kind of quality around these parts!

Thanks for the comments. I like the cluster since it shows the inside of a valve along with the others. The one with the spins is as I found it. I am afraid to do anything else to it.

Those are some nice brachiopods.

Congrats on the wonderful finds.

Very nice finds. I am envious of both the cluster and the spiny brach too. I don't get Carboniferous brachs too often in my collecting travels.

Shamalama...

 

We get Pennsylvanian brachiopods in abundance in certain areas of Texas (especially around the Jacksboro, Bridgeport/Brownwood area) but they're not usually quite that nice!  I guess I'm going to have to pay a little more attention to the Brownwood area this year!

I can understand that, but it sure would be nice to repair and expose it a bit more if possible, since it's such a special find.

Ludwigia,

Yes I think an air abrader would work on it but I have not got one. I have been meaning to get one for years.

Too bad. It sure makes a world of difference if you're willing to make the investment.
