Strange rock

Recommended Posts

Adrienne

I found this rock in Southern Ontario buried in the dirt in my front yard.  I kept it because it thought it had a neat design and now I am wondering whether it is a fossil and what type.  The size is 3 cm tall with a 3 cm diameter.

I agree, coral, and a very nice one that reveals the interesting inner parts.

 

Very cool, I’m looking up pictures of coral fossils now and I see the resemblance.  Thanks for putting me on the right track.

Very nice solitary rugose 'horn' coral! :)

Probably Devonian.

Yes, rugose coral, Devonian and likely from the Dundee Formation.
