So.....i found an emerald brachiopod



How do you even price that?!?

I lack any familiarity with pricing fossils. So my first step would be to compare with similar items on gem rock auctions to get a sense of what people are paying by watching auctions and seeing where they end.

Well the thing is brachiopods are a dime a dozen where I am. As i cleaned it it took on a blue tone. So may be a sapphire not sure.
what i was loosing it over was the requirement for a stone of either types being in this common fossil.

As it is a casting fossil it would have needed to fill with ash get close enough to the mantle to remelt bit not so close as to burn out and then begin to grow. I know that would be insanely rare and sadly all i find online… are pokemon
