Fossil Coral - the beauty of nature...

Fossil Coral - the beauty of nature...

Fossil coral is a natural stone formed when ancient coral is gradually replaced with agate. The proper name for fossil coral is 'agatized coral' or 'agatized fossil coral'.

Fossilized coral usually appears as small flower-like patterns in the stone. It can display a wide range of natural colors from white and pink to brown, gray, black, yellow and red.
