I have a small fossil shell that on the inside has a sandy concretion of red crag deposit, that is the pebbly lloking background. After a couple of stack sets she got tired of the flash strobing so she took herself and the prey round to the other, outer face of the shell. I carefully turned it over and got two more sets.
