Fossil Red Horn Coral Pendant - Utah

This is a stunning pendant, hand crafted in Utah from 300 million year old, red, agatized horn coral. The pendant is approximately 1.6" tall and the coral has been sliced and polished so that it's beautiful internal cell structure is displayed. This fossil horn coral is not actively being mined anymore so there isn't much of it remaining.

The ancient coral reefs now lie thousands of feet up in the mountains of Utah. As these corals fossilized the original organic material was replaced by silica and other minerals producing the brilliant coloration.
