RE: Need something to mount a coupla little fossils



Richard:

I don't know how much they cost nowadays (it's been a while since I needed to buy one) - but a Riker mount is nice.

Essentially a metal or pressboard frame with a pane of glass, that fits over a slightly smaller frame with a back, that has Styrofoam in it to place the fossils in. There are 1 or 2 pins on each side of the frames that hook them together. The fossils can be pressed into the foam and are highly visible through the glass, and easily accessible (just pull the pins out).

My nieces gave me a shark's tooth and a cave bear's tooth. They're in
little plastic baggies things. I'd like to have some sort of mount or
stand or whatever so they'll see it when they visit and won't kill me for
not displaying them.

I checked with a little rock shop type store here in town but all he could
suggest was a wad of clay (was hoping for something a bit less tacky).

Anything online or other suggestions?
