Bleached Brain Coral

While the work on the bridge between Brgy. Cangmating and Brgy. Poblacion was being completed, there was a large pile of debris located at the side of the road nearby. This debris consisted of mostly rocks, stones, dirt and broken pieces of concrete which would eventually be used for fill in the area between the road and the bridge.

One day, on my walk to the market, I came upon a large piece of bleached brain coral among the debri. I took the coral home and cleaned off as much of the dirt as possible.

This souvenir (or paper weight) rests now on my computer desk. I took this photo near my keyboard to give an idea of the size.The dimensions of the coral are 7 inches long, 4 inches wide and 3.5 inches deep.
