I've always wondered how geologists can just split an ordinary-looking rock and perfectly locate a fossil without destroying it. Can anyone explain? Maybe they just show us their successes, and not the 200 fails that came before.

Sure they do, but they also know where to look, depending on the site, the type of the rock, geological history. I've found two as uneducated amateur.

Some fossils seem to be harder than the surrounding material and that may be the reason. I've seen many finished fossils the surrounding material removed and the fossil revealed in one piece and polished for display. Takes skill, practice and patience.
