Gorgeous gem quality Carved Fossil Coral Fish was carved from the fossil coral from the Island of Sumatra in Indonesia. PLEASE SEE ALL TEN PHOTOS! Last two photos were taken in dim light with no flash so that one can better view the intricacies of the carving. Carved Fish measures 3 inches long OR 75 millimeters long X 2 1/8 inches tall OR 53 millimeters tall X over 3/8 inch thick OR 10 millimeters thick.
Carving is so fine that the eye of the fish is placed in just the right place on the carving, very hard to accomplish. This was once a living coral colony that is now petrified or turned to stone or agate. Each little starburst flower design was once a living coral that grew together with many others in a colony, but died 20 million years ago during a volcanic eruption and was later fossilized. Please read about the history of fossil coral, the living coral creature and the metaphysical properties of Agatized Fossil Coral, below.Beautiful gem carving arrives within an organza drawstring pouch and small plastic easel stand will be given for display. Beautiful and very unique carving has been energized within the Mount Shasta vortex.
HOW FOSSIL CORAL IS FORMED: In the islands of Indonesia, extensive eruptions of volcanic debris have repeatedly buried forests and nearby reefs offshore as well. During burial, the decay of the volcanic ash releases mobile silica and other elements which saturate formation waters and in some situations reacts with the carbonate of the buried coralline reefs or other organic matter such as wood from buried forests. The volcanic islands of Indonesia are host to numerous deposits of fossil coral. The Barisan Mountain Range, along the western boundary of the Island of Sumatra, hosts a rare and ornate suite of fossils.Miocene age (approx 20 million year old) coralline reefs and near shore forests were preserved by burial in volcanic sediments rich in minerals including iron, manganese and silica. Thru a combination of processes the full pattern and character of the original coral life forms have been preserved in great detail. Temporal range: CambrianRecent(geologic time periods). Corals are marine invertebrates in the class Anthozoa of phylum Cnidaria. They typically live in compact colonies of many identical individual polyps. The group includes the important reef builders that inhabit tropical oceans and secrete calcium carbonate to form a hard skeleton. A coral "group" is a colony of myriad genetically identical polyps. Each polyp is a sac-like animal typically only a few millimeters in diameter and a few centimeters in length. A set of tentacles surround a central mouth opening.
An exoskeleton is excreted near the base. Over many generations, the colony thus creates a large skeleton that is characteristic of the species. Individual heads grow by asexual reproduction of polyps. Corals also breed sexually by spawning: polyps of the same species release gametes simultaneously over a period of one to several nights around a full moon.

Fossil Coral is said to be a gift from the stars that is used to enhance telepathic communication with other realms and dimensions. The Quartz qualities in fossils make them perfect tools for working on past life memories. Quartz is known as a recorder of time and events. Coral Fossil is also helpful for promoting inner peace and quieting disruptive thoughts. It can used for opening the gateway for communications with dead relatives and for receiving insights into some of the infinite Universal knowledge.
Fossil coral is said to assist in business endeavours, whilst keeping you grounded and motivated; it is also said to be an excellent protection stone for travel on or near water. In physical healing fossil stone is used to assist with aliments of the bones, skeletal system, hands and feet.
