Congratulations on your brown, heh.

The DOF doesn't seem like enough. My eyes want to focus on the center bit, but it's not clear enough. It might have been better to stand this fossil up on its edge so all of the surface area would be in your DOF. Maybe this is in a case though and you're not allowed to do that. In that situation, crack that case open, stand the fossil up, snap its photo, and RUN!!!
