Found that about a year ago while out with dogs, still wandering what it is. Could you help me with it?

Hello, thanks for reply 🙂 Found it on the river side up at the farm where I work, East Ayrshire. Will need to look around weebit more maybe ll have some more luck. Not too sure what to do with yet now I know what it is and know it's not just a bit of dirt. Is it worth to try to polish it somehow? Must of been warm here at somepoint for coral to grow, isn't it?

I believe some of Britain was a shallow sea. I keep my fossils natural so so done else would need to advise you about polishing it

Hi.
I'm thinking Siphonodendron again but TqB will know for sure.

Yes, What became East Ayrshire was at the equator during the early Carboniferous.....

Diphyphyllum I think, but possibly the similar looking Siphonodendron though that usually (not always) has a central columella. I think I can see some Diphyphyllum style branching (parricidal increase http://www.corallosphere.org/term/486.html 😉.
