Not pretty, but like you say, what are you gonna do?? Ideally I look around to try to find a specimen on the corner of a rock which would be easy to chip off. It can be really hard to get a good specimen from the center of a flat face of hard rock without making an ugly scar and shattering it mercilessly. But in desperate times, I’ve made do with prying off one or two apothecia with a pocket knife into a ziplock — but, wow, is it hard to section a bare apothecium that’s less than a millimeter wide!! Hah!
Given that the boulder it is on weighs several tons, do you scrape it of with an knife or do you try to get a chip of the rock? I assume the key is to get one of the apothecia.
