This kind of Fossil Coral is a natural stone that is formed when ancient coral, over long periods of time, is gradually replaced with Agate. Agatized coral typically appears as small flower-like patterns in the stone & can form in a wide range of natural colors. The oldest fossil corals are from the Ordovican period, which began over 450 million years ago.
