Unprepped Fossils

‘Unprepped’ fossils are simply fossils sold as they were found – with none of the matrix or surrounding stone removed.

‘Preppers’ use tools – either hand tools, electric hammer tools, or air compressor driven tools to remove the stony matrix and show the fossil off better. Fossil preparation is an art form; carving the fossil out of the rock without damage or cracks can be very tricky.
