Solitary Coral Multiple Plate
Formation: Coral Layer
Location: Moab, Utah
Size: Block is 6" across, 4.5" tall
Here is a textbook plate of solitary, or ''horn'', corals. These are Oristyna sp. (?) from the Devonian of Moab, Utah. These corals are found in blocks of solid limestone, and have to be soaked in acid for weeks to be exposed. There are MANY horn corals preserved in a very 3-dimensional manner, ON ALL SIDES OF THE PLATE! The large, colorful fossils exhibit extremely fine detail and contrast nicely with the darker-colored matrix. The corals are fully natural and display beautifully on the dense block of limestone. This is a very collectible multiple example of Devonian horn corals from breathtaking Moab, Utah.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
