Horned Coral in Payson, AZ
« on: August 17, 2018, 10:51:24 AM »
Found some nice horned Coral on our camping, rockhound trip to the Payson AZ area off the control road.  Found lots of nodules, most are filled full of little crystals, the locals call them brains, we picked up dozens of them. They were scattered everywhere. The sizes range from pea size up to softball size and bigger. Colors ranged in white, grey, brown and black.  The surronding area of Pine and Payson is full of fossils.  Gem trails of Arizona and Rockhounding Arizona was my go to info, I didn't find much on the internet about the area but once we got there we had no problem finding treasures, and the cool pines were a plus to get a break from the heat of summer. Oh yeah having an ATV helped in carring us and the load of rocks.  Happy Hunting Linda
