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.
These specific specimens have been polished and smoothed over for a nice shiny finish! Either of these pieces would look spectacular in a well lit case! Perhaps consider keeping them a set, as an eyecatching centerpiece!
Metaphysically it is believed that the eye shapes on the fossil are meant to stimulate the Third Eye Chakra. It also is meant to allow you to let go of your pre-concieved concept of time & allow you to think of a more spiritual way of thinking about time.
