The 'coral' has concentric rings along the inside and is hexagonal along the ridges. I can not see anything that looks like modern septa costa lines though. I've been told it may be Favosites but i cant find too many accounts of them being found.


In regards to the bone, well it was washed out onto the beach, it definitely looks fossilized but I can't say much more about it.


Both pieces are around 5cm in diameter.

Dirty Pete
Looks like fibrous calcite (beef) with a remnant layer of cone in cone type structure. Pretty sure its not a Silurian coral. The bone looks modern but I'm no expert, test it on the dog maybe.

Hello and welcome to the forum, I'm afraid I agree with Pete on both objects
