Moroccan Mystery - Coral or Brach?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I just got back from Arizona where I spent a couple of days at the Tucson Gem Show. On my quest for coprolite treasure at the Moroccan village, I came across this little mystery piece.

I'm assuming it is some type of coral or brachiopod. The dealer only had a handful of these and this one had the least damage. Can anyone identify it? Any guesses on the age?

When I first saw it, it reminded me of the septarians in this thread. Obviously, they are not the same.

I agree with Tarquin : Middle Devonian Calceola sandalina from Morocco. :)
