Fossil or agatized coral is formed when ancient coral is gradually replaced with agate. The fossilized coral appears as small flower-like shapes on the stone. Fossil coral can be found in brown, gray, black, white, yellow and red. Most specimens are found in Indonesia and the USA (Florida and Georgia).
Coral has been prized as a gem for thousands of years. It is believed to offer protection and to assist with infertility.
