Hi,

I would get a hobby engraver, start away from the fossil and slowly whittle down the rock until the thickness is quite thin, then as you work your way towards the fossil the matrix hopefully just pings off with the vibration revealing the fossil.
Each rock and fossil is different so play it by ear.
