Hi All, New to fossil hunting and was wondering if any one could give me information on this find.

Also, what is the best way to clean and preserve.

Thanks

Hi EC, i'm going to stick my neck out and say that it looks to me like your find might be two fossils, an ammonite and some kind of sponge, both worn. I'm not sure that prep would be that worthwhile but if you had the tools and time to have a play it might be interesting to try removing some matrix to investigate. I'm sure sobody on here will have some more ideas, by the way where was it found?

Hello and welcome to the forum. Where was this pebble found so that we can estimate it's age. Am I correct in saying it was was a beach find?

Thanks Little Hunter and Prep, yes it was a beach find on a beach in Dublin so east coast of Ireland. What sort of tools would I use? And would love to know the age estimate. I think you might be right btw Little Hunter I've been trying to work it out and I think it's 2 fossils
