Mysterious coral fossil


Recommended Posts

This is a coral fossil found in Myloi Gorge, in Rethymno area. I can't identify it, but i know

its epoch is Pliocene because in that area were found fish fossils in matrix dated from the Zanclean subepoch( subepoch in Pliocene).

Please, can you try to identify it.

Here is an enhanced detail. It looks rather disorganized to be a colonial coral. I have a hard time seeing the boundary between corallites. Maybe it is a group of crystals. We really need a much better up close photo.

Try taking photo with trypod. Use macro setting and 2 second timer. This should get us better focus. A top and side photo    Awesome find. Packy

@Ludwigia The images are bad, so it could be coral or anything anorganic. Sorry for not coming back earlier but I escaped almost weeks to the Gulf of Mexico.
