Torquay corals have always been highly sought after for their bright colours and diversity. They are becoming very scarse to collect thesedays. This nodule has been cut in half, ground gem smooth and finally a high polish applied to reveal lovely detail. Approximately 380 million years old.
A lovely example of this burrowing shipworm which is approximately 50 million years old. The specimen exhibits a thin slice which is packed both sides, ground gem smooth and finally polished to reveal excellent detail. Very nice study fossil for the collector.
