Merry and Happy and A prep project for the days inbetween…

Merry and Happy !

Merry and Happy !

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year…

For the days inbetween, I´ve picked myself a prep project that is also leading to the topic of my next post,
it is an Alums Shale nodule with a large 9 cm Peronoceras turriculatum and another smaller Peronoceras, possibly P. subarmatum.

Unsharp picture (just teasing !) of a 9 cm Peronoceras, half prepped (I just could not wait...)

Looking through my collection, I´ve also found some more Peronoceras specimen that need a re-prep to make them presentable,
so you´ll see the next post some time shortly before or after the new year…

Until then, have a great time and be safe.

    • Dave,
      Yes – there is a small ammonite there as well – without inner whorls, but I will most probably leave it on there.
      It´s a bit of a prep challenge, since there is a larger one below that as well…

      Best regards,
      Andy

  2. Andy,

    I’d like to thank you for your great blog posts this year – I’ve learned lots, and have enjoyed taking part on this knowledge journey. Best wishes for the festive season, and I hope you have a prolific new year (both in terms of fossil hunting and book writing!).

    All the best,

    Joe
