300,000,000 years is as old as my Mother in Law!!!
Its good to know this coral is Miocene. I know of places which Coral Daddy took me to where it is laying on the ground basically, no more than 3 feet down. I know the Natives really liked it. I like it too. After heating its absolutely outstanding to work. Never know what color your gonna get. What is really neat about coral is after heating you can work it to a nice shape and the colors are faboulous, grab the same overall material that ancient man worked, a projectile point and it is the same colors but its patinated and aged another 3000-5000-8000 YBP and patinated the newly exposed material revealing colors you can not produce. Some even get clear edges. Coral is a very special material.
I like the facts, Im still learning on here and appreciate the scientif explinations, all I know is basic common knowledge.
Nice Coral Newnan, blue, rusty red, white, polyps and the perfect typology!!
