The Oddbins Take

Given finding them usually involves whacking a rock with a hammer, it's a miracle any fossils remain intact. Especially delicate ones, like the echinoderms and crinoids. Then they have to be carefully cleaned, too.


With this in mind, a group of paleontologists based near Devon's Jurassic coast developed a preparation that would help. It took years, but finally they had it. A liquid with just enough acidity to break down excess rock, and a playful little fizz to lift the particles, leaving the specimen perfectly exposed. Needless to say, a celebration ensued. Actually, with such aplomb things got a little fuzzy. It was only after the toast was offered and glasses drained they realised they'd drunk the special mixture. Happily, being grape-based, no ill effects were suffered. On the contrary, they use it less and less for cleaning fossils now...
