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!
