I have an ammonite with dirt on it: I am looking for easy ways to remove the dirt. there is about a 3inch ammonite inside with a tiny 2millimeter one. Note: I have tried the "freeze and thaw" method, but my ammonite is already exposed to the air so that will not work.

Photos would be good! What is the 'dirt' ( referred to as matrix) composed of - mudstone, limestone etc and where was it collected from (as accurately as possible pleas)?
Please note - photos of all aspects please with a ruler ap!proprately placed!

also, I brought this from a shop, so I am not sure where it was found or the age. But if it helps, it is in a black rock, and is black (preservation layer seems thick and good.) and it is black and has a "ridge" edge. the smaller one is just the classic ripple edge that pops into everyone's head. also has some sort of white rock in select areas.

DuhDiamond  If you can find the tree icon, along the top of the toolbar, where you type a message, this enables you to post a photo. Photo can be selected from your computer.
It may help to solve your problem if a photo is added.

I know, but it only gives me an option to send it by url from the tree, no direct photos. I'm not that stupid.
