Fossil Bryozoan - Ectoprocta sp.

Bryozoans are tiny colonial animals that generally build stony skeletons of calcium carbonate, superficially similar to coral. There are about 8,000 living species, with several times that number of fossil forms known.

Bryozoan skeletons grow in a variety of shapes and patterns: mound-shaped, lacy fans, branching twigs, and even corkscrew-shaped. Their skeletons have numerous tiny openings, each of which is the home of a minute animal.

Evolution carries a variety of unique fossils!

Individual shapes and fossils vary but your item will resemble the pictured example.
