Hello. I am from Latvia and new here. Found a strange stone and was advised to come and ask here what it is. Fossil? Strange stone?


if it is no clear enough - red thing on the right side is a box of matches

Yes it appears to be a fossil. I agree a coral---tabulate, maybe the chain coral Halysites--looks similar to the specimen I have from the U.S. ? I'll let the invert folks weigh in/confirm the tentative ID. Nice specimen! welcome to the forum! Regards, Chris

Nice specimen and certainly a halysitid coral. Good photo but more detail would be needed to pin down the exact genus - e.g. Catenipora and Acanthohalysites are both possibilities.
