    I was hoping for a few tips on preserving what I would call free standing fossils. The pop up book nature on a lot of the stuff I’ve been looking through has me increasingly worried ill knock them off accidentally.  I found out the hard way dipping them in water was a terrible idea. Luckily it was only one and I saw it right away solo I haven’t made the same mistake.

    In a seemingly normal eye agate.  I wonder just How often things like this go completely unnoticed.

    Looks like copper crystals. Very common, but very valuable

    Nay sayers unite! I won’t bother anyone with what lies beneath(it’s cool though), but rather the surface inhabitants, and wait for the “that’s not a fossil,  but rather a” insert dream crushing end of sentence here..
