From an old coral reef in Florida, that was mined for building stone for awhile, and is now a state park:

A beautiful piece of coral Mike. Who would believe that something so old could still be found!

Hey how did I miss this posting yesterday :?

A close look picks up some interesting detail. Do you know how this break/cut relates to the original surface of the coral - the right hand side suggests a transverse section - although there appears to be structures that resemble individual coralites elsewhere in the image?

What's the scale on this one Mike?

It is incredible when you think of the chemistry these little creatures use to produce their homes and the massive amounts of coral that they have produced. An excellent picture Mike.
