Fungia Coral


A piece of Fungia Coral, commonly known as a "Stone Mushroom". These often have the appearance of being bleached or dead. Bargrave recorded in his original catalogue that it had been purchased from an Armenian in Venice who reputedly had very many "of several sorts of colours and bigness, and divers other stones of pretty forms and figures".
