Polished Coral Fossils

Lovely polished coral specimens, with one polished side.

We don't have a great supply of these, so we don't do random selections. In this listing, the piece you're looking at is the one you'll receive. These coral pieces have fossilised, and then been cut/polished into a shape. The polishing really brings out the patterning of the ancient corals.

These are typically comprised of very soft minerals and will scratch incredibly easily - however, they can also be polished very easily, even by hand with some 1000, 2000, and 3000 grit sandpaper and a piece of leather with some cerium oxide or tin oxide.


  • #1 - 85x66.1x27.5MM - a fantastically delicate and fragile piece with plenty of bright orange and red botryoidal growth, from Florida USA. Rings like a glass when flicked gently.
  • #4 - 105x60x17MM - a larger flat piece. Possibly a scleractinian coral, something like Isastrea. Unknown location, likely UK.
  • #5 - 91.5x66x52MM - a large chunky piece intended as a paperweight. This is either Hexagonaria or another similar colonial coral, and is large enough to be sliced several more times. 505 grams!

Frequently asked questions and delivery information

How do we grade stones?

There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.


How does our ordering and delivery process work?

You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.

I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.


How do international orders work?

After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.


I’d like to return my order for a refund.

No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.


What payment methods do you accept?

I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
