Possible honeycomb coral fossil?

Recommended Posts

Bbusse

I've loved finding rocks and fossils my whole life. the last few months I've decided to learn more about what I'm finding. Any help would be appreciated this fossil I believe is honeycomb coral but it looks like it has turned into quartz possibly calcite. I haven't polished the piece yet it's still the way it was found.

Can see the first one, the second is still not showing.

It is a colonial coral.

Others may be more specific.

Is a tabulate coral.

Others here can be more specific than I can be. But they will want a location it was found, this information is vital to a good identification.
