Any idea how to preserve this thing? LOL I can just see the dog eating it or something! My Erica would be so mad!
I would keep it in a rigid, crush-proof box with some padding (kleenex) underneath - not too tight. Like an acrylic box that baseball collectors use, or the like, see-through so you don't accidentally pick it up and say "Hey! Empty box! I'll just wing it across the room..."
Find a dry, non-humid place and you shoule be fine! I have an older, smaller flake that got broken in shipment, that's four years old now with no visible signs of aging.
Thanks again for writing in, and I'll keep a running record of Giant Flake sightings....
