Hi all

I hope you all are safe and well. Please can I have some help on this coral ID. If was found about 12 years ago . Somewhere In the Yorkshire Dales/ Pennie Way . Sorry but that’s the best location I have until MrsR looks at a map. I can do better pictures tomorrow if required. 


 @TqB any ideas pal. 
 

thanks for your help Bobby

Cheers Tim the silly thing about it is it has been in the garden for many years and I thought it was lost. It is now on my shelf where it should be. 
 

all the best Bobby

I bet that would look great if cut and polished.  :wub:  Any ID I might suggest would be just a guess.  :headscratch:

Very nice, Bobby. 

I would go for Siphonodendron, but wait for Tarquin, he's much better at these corals than I am.

I'd bet that is at least partially silicified.

Hi Bobby! It's Actinocyathus floriformis - the large, bubbly dissepiments combined with cerioid structure are distinctive. I find partially silicified ones exactly like that in the Great Limestone in the Durham Pennines. Definitely one of the most beautiful Carboniferous species. :) 

 

Like these bits:

Thanks Tarquin much appreciated.  It is quite a nice piece and I am pleased to have found it again. That’s some beautiful specimens you have too. On mine part of the structure is visible is it possible to enhance this?


Speak soon Bobby and stay safe.

Thanks, Bobby. Yours looks fine the way it is and it would be very difficult to polish the whole pebble - you'd have to grind away the nice silicified bits first. It could be cut but then you'd cut into the longitudinal sections.
