A Devonian age coral from Devon 416 – 359 million years old. This period in Earth’s history was first recognised when studying the geology of Devon, hence its name. In the Devonian, southern England was located underwater to the south of the equator on the fringe of the tropics. This specimen is from the shallow, warm water limestone outcropping on the south Devon coast.
