Hi everyone ,
I recently found this slab at runswick bay.
It seems full of ammonites , but I don't seem able to do anything with it . My air pen hardly touches it so I thought hammer and chisel to split it. All that seems to do is chip the edges. So what I want to know is , am I wasting my time trying to split it. The slab is about 50mm thick
Picture 1&2 are from one side 3&4 from the other.

Thanks in advance
Rob

Hi Rob - I don't think it will produce anything worthwhile, so wouldn't waste much time on it. Better to go look for another one!
