The proper name for fossil coral is 'agatized coral' or 'agatized fossil coral', because during formation, the coral remains are gradually replaced with agate, a variety of naturally occurring chalcedony, or microcrystalline quartz
This piece is well shaped for a pendant - either side looks good. Can be enhanced by adding some smaller stones, and using wire wrapping, soldering or utilizing a bail finding. Since agate is fairly hard (7 on the Mohs scale) and very durable, fossil coral is suitable for all kinds of jewelry.
