Lake Erie (Paleozoic) Tabulate Coral Fossil?

Recommended Posts

Alex_Krest

Hello everyone,

 

I recently found this piece along the shores of Lake Erie near Sunset Bay, NY.  I'm not sure what I have here and was wondering if anyone might be able to help me identify it.  For a little general information, the piece is pale white and features small tubular / stacking formations throughout it.  When held in the light, the little stacks sparkle.  The piece is just a little over an inch in diameter.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
