Liz and welcome to the forum! The best way is to have them 'prepped' (prepared,
cleaned) using air tools made for the job. These tools are not cheap, but you
could buy them and 'do it yourself' - with a bit of experience a lot of
collectors get good results. You could also take them/ send them to a professional
preparator but this may be costly if the preservation is not as good as you think,
ammonite centres may be missing or there may be damage caused during the
fossilisation process and may not warrant the expense!
Hello, these ammonites tend to be compleet and can also be prept with just a hardened steel nail wich is sharpened and a small hammer.
If you take it easy and try to avoid hitting the ammonite with the point of the nail it will take you about an afternoon to clean it.
Small bits at the time, if you try to be fast, you`ll probably ruin it...
Good luck and let us know(see) how it came out.
