I think belemnites with super glue in them are a universal constant in the collection of every fossil hunter worldwide lol.
Thanks

Hi,
As I was in Seatown last week one of the challenges amongst our party was to find a complete belemnite, which resulted in finding this. Im afraid I had to use the superglue once

Hi Sal,
 

Nice specimen, you've got quite a bit of phragmocone there. Nothing wrong with broken belemnites! - at least 90% of mine have been glued , often in many places for the thinner ones.

 

If you use paraloid rather than superglue it's easier to get a near invisible joint as you can wipe any squeeze out with acetone when it's set.

It's a nice one - well done. I'm very lucky because I have a spot near me where I find lots of complete ones.

Nice, a little bit more prep would certainly reveal more of the phragmocone.

If you don't look, you won't find.

Thank you everyone - unfortunately the phragmocone has since crumbled beyond repair
