Friday Funny - What is that?

Green Mount Cemetery - Baltimore, Maryland

Another interesting item discovered during a visit to Green Mount Cemetery. Even the tour guide was not sure about this marker. Everyone in our group thought it looked suspiciously like a brain. What do you think?

  1. Hi Deb

    I have seen a similar picture somewhere before, I'm now going to spend the next 8 hours or so racking my brain (no pun intended).

    I believe it is a piece of brain coral.

    I'll get back to you!

  3. Hi again,

    Well the book I thought I'd seen it in didn't have it in.

    Annoying. However it is fossilised brain coral. Its an amazing looking coral, if you do a quick google you'll get loads of images up of the living coral, they grow to be huge too.
