Re: fossils stick to tongue?
Has anyone heard that certain types of fossil bone stick to one's tongue? If so, what is the mineral that would produce this phenomenon? talc? I have read that calcium is the mineral in question. Apparently if the
bone is young enough to have some calcium in it, it will stick to your
tongue. An old bone (more than 50,00 years or so) with all the calcium
gone will not stick.
Many thanks in advance for advice!
