    I did receive a response from emailed photos that this is possibly a colonial coral often called chain coral (Halysites) and either Ordovician or Silurian in age (485 to 419 million years).

    • @gail-tennant This is a coral but not a chain coral, The corallites in your specimen are all bunched together. In a chain coral the corallites are linked on the edges and look like a chain – hence the name. I would hesitate to place an age on this since it appears to have been transported by water or glaciers depending on your location.
