Hello:

I found this in my backyard close to where I found a fossil clam, which I displayed here awhile ago.  It is either a fossil plant, coral, or irregular stone.  Please excuse the hasty way I photographed it. Note the areas designated.  The reason I think it might be of interest is that it was found in a matrix that also produced fossil oysters and clams.

Hello Gerald, firstly, where (town, village etc it you 'backyard'? Was it found under the soil, path, gravel etc? . Could you please take hotos which are focussing on the areas that you've marked with an appropriate  scale (ruler) appropriately placed in all photos.

Yes, a measurement would be good but my first impression is a sponge or coral of some sort [smile]

Hello:

Me again.  Attached are the measurements you suggested and a quarter.  Also attached are the geological details to give a background of this Early Cretaceous fossil.  It was found in a matrix ploughed over during the building of the house.  The oysters I once showcased were found in a strata across the street in the same formation.  A clam shell, also showcased in my North Texas Fossils, was found near the attached fossil.
