Fossilized Coral

 

When I first saw this in my mother in laws garden, I thought it was a plant.

Being a sensory kind of person, my first impulse was to touch & feel the surface.

To my surprise it felt stone cold & solid.

Turns out, it wasn’t a plant but a piece of fossilized coral.

The fossilization process had perfectly preserved the intricate detail of the coral, even it’s rounded shape.

I can’t help but wonder how long it took become a piece of fossilized coral?

& where this piece of coral was when it began to fossilize?

Once again, Nature never ceases to be a source of inspiration & fascination.
