Hi,
These two pieces were from my first trip out to the Wrens Nest in Dudley. Two of the better finds from the trip.
There is so much to look at in the rock and they are really interesting so i was thinking about getting them prepped? I'm guessing they would just need some air abrasive tooling. The grainte setts to the right are 100mm x 100mm to give you an idea of size.
Would anyone be interested and any idea of cost? 20200126_115029.jpg  20200126_115021.jpg

Hello again, this type of thing is in my top 3 fossils. Before doing anything more than brushing it with a soft toothbrush, look at the fossils and the matrix for bryozoanswhich may be lurking! if you don't see any, then a very quick air adrading might be useful, it should not break the bank.

So bryozoans will break down with air abrading? Don't forget I'm new to all this, i have already cleaned with a soft brush and can't get anymore off so I'm guessing air is the right path to go?
Was thinking about buying this, thoughts?

It's up to you, but I wouldn't go to that sort of expense - don't forget you have to add the price of a compressor, prepping box, extractor, etc! I am unable to do any prepping for a few monthsm but I'm sure if you look around someone will do it for you for £10 - £50. I suggest you contact me I might be able to suggest someone.
