Polished on the top and bottom to allow for the coral colony to be seen and with raw edges exposed, this Freeform Fossil Coral Dish will be the centerpiece of conversation at your next gathering!

This specimen is a fragment of Devonian fossil coral from the Assa Zag beds of Morocco. It is estimated to date back 360,000,000 years when oceans submerged the land. The patterns present in these specimens are breathtaking. Each serving dish contains an intricately detailed impression of the prehistoric coral colony they were made from.

Coral is a marine invertebrate that lives in large colonies called reefs. They first appeared in the fossil record over 530 million years ago and their descendants have survived into the modern day. Coral fossils are found around the world and are windows into the prehistoric world, showing us what life was like in the deep past.

Fossil coral is a natural gemstone that is created when prehistoric coral is gradually replaced with agate. Agatized coral, also known as fossilized coral, is formed when agate, a form of chalcedony, replaces the minerals in coral. Fossilized coral holds the wisdom of planet Earth, and increases physical and creative inspiration. It is said to be grounding and supportive of positive change, and brings luck to its owner. The patterns that dance in these pieces are like gorgeous mandalas, straight from Mother Nature. If you desire deep in your heart to bring something to life, whether a new opportunity or a creative project, this Fossilized Coral Serving Plate is for you.

This Fossilized Coral has been authentically certified, making it an incredibly rare find for fossil caretakers.
