Other Specimens Cleaned That Day
In the morning, a member brought in a beautiful, enrolled Isotelus Trilobite. The pictures below were taken after Dan was done cleaning it. Nice specimen!
Here's a great prone Flexicalymene, found by a Dry Dredger and
already cleaned at time of photo
Here's a great Flexicalymene on a shale nodule. It has already been cleaned
by Dan when I arrived on the scene.
Next is a Flexicalymene retrorsa from the Waynesville Ft.
Ancient member, that I had personally surface-collected (not dug). I first
soaked it in Quaternary Ammonium. Then Dan Cooper used his air abrasive tool on
it. It now looks great!
Now for a few stray "before" pictures that I didn't get a chance to take an "after picture", due to the nice weather.
The first is a TINY trilobite.
Next is a Flexicalymene.
This Isotelus has loose exoskeleton fragments that are
waiting to be glued back in place.
Here it is all cleaned up!!!
See extra large closeup
That's all for this field trip. We hope you enjoyed it!
Next Field Trip: March 27, 2004 - Southeastern, Indiana
