Two slabs and encut of a three pounder , i will make a polished standup display piece out of the the chunk that is left. sill have to cut the base and will get more slabs from that . This was found in the overburden of the local limestone quarry . the limestone is 60 feet below the surface, so they pile the soil and rock to the side-strip mine . there is glacial till in them piles. this is a oldie around 600 MYO.
Thanks for the comments , Gary , it comes from experience, having found these in pretty much every state of preservation , from weathered to quartz to geodized , i have a eye ,so to speak ,for them. There is still a remant pattern in this one, the layering is still recognizable . When i get around to it, im gonna to post a line of preservation, of these and some different types of corals . also these pics were taken under incandesent light, this has better blue and white color.

I think that is a match to some rocks I found and thought they looked to be a fossil coral or sponge. I have some in polish right now and should be done in 3 days. Some has a pink tint, some a lavender tint and other is gray tinted mixed with white. I`ll post pics when done and maybe you can tell me if they are sponges or not.

150FromFundy: Driving east into the Saturday morning sunrise to hit a rocky beach at low tide. Fingers crossed for agate and jasper, and a shelf specimen if it is a lucky day.
