I must say kudos to those of you who can suffer the weather and everything and spend so much time on these fossils. I love palentology(spelling?) but there is no way I could do it for a living.

What minerals replaced the original to make it look like marble? It look like you can just pick it up (as to a lot of your finds that you post :razz:). How much work have you already done (at the time of the photo) and how much longer did it take to free it from the substrate?

Beautiful flora and fauna Kevin! I think I have a little orthocone that looks a lot like the one on the left, I'll post it later. Are you finding any other fossils in your Ordovician rocks?

I hope there are not a lot of lizards at Terri's place, I might get terribly distracted from the rocks to see if they will let me approach :grin:

The second pic. of the A. kingianus, with the knife for scale, would be awesome prepped! It reminds of the one Hajar prepped and posted his progress on. :smile:
