I believe this to be a coral colony. I'm leaning more towards a rugose colony, but am not positive as most of my experience has been with solitary horn (rugose) corals. Maybe its a larger species of tabulate? Or maybe I'm just over analyzing... I tend to do that. The whole specimen is roughly 4 inches x 4 inches(10cmx10cm) with it narrowing at the bottom to 3 inches (7.6cm) or so. I don't know the age as it was a gift, but I believe it is from the area (Central Kentucky, U.S.A). The individual specimens have flattened sides which makes me think of tabulate coral with its hexagonal shape, but that could be deformity. Then again, I think I can also see septum (circled in red). That may be pareidolia though. Any input would be appreciated!
