I am hoping someone can help identify this, Was found of the South West shore of Lake Michigan~Harrington Beach.

found lots of Brachiopods and Crinoid Stems but I wasn't sure what this was.

Thanks in advance, I am a Novice .

I'm not sure about the coral, coral around here is very recognizable.We have found lots of it, But I'm no expert by any means.

Where I was the ( what seemed to be Dolostone ) went right up to the beach along the shore line if that helps?

Also the fossil was found upside down from the view in the picture.

lol..sorry, saw Hunington beach and immediately thought California. :D

When left to weather in soft rock, some corals do resemble the structures in your example.

Styolite in deed it does look like also considering this was a huge ( limestone-Dolostone) bedrock plane I will agree.

Thanks for the info everyone.

Styolite is found heavily within the Racine Limestone which this looks like. The Racine is silurian in case you wanted to know.
