From Ancient Ocean Beds! Originating during the Oligocene-Miocene Period (38-25 million years ago), this coral piece has had quite a lifespan! Silica-rich water has replaced, over time, the calcium carbonate skeleton of a once-living coral entity, resulting in light brown botryoidal and stalactite columnar formations. With a fan-like interior, this presentation piece exhibits natural surfaces on both sides, with a slight polish on the front rim. Recovered from the Withlacoochee River, Tampa Bay, FL, this lovely display specimen rests on a custom oak stand - a proud fossil representative of the Agatized Coral family and Florida's State Rock!
