Here is a very nice pair of solitary, or ''horn'', corals. These are Stereolasma rectum from the Devonian of New York. There are two horn corals preserved in a very 3-dimensional manner. The dark grey fossils exhibit fine detail and contrast nicely with the lighter-colored matrix. The corals are naturally showcased on the large plate of shale that also contains a trilobite cephalon (Eldredgeops). This is a great multiple association of excellent horn corals and trilobite from Upstate New York.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
