Horn coral
The Rugosa, or horn corals, were an order of cnidaria (corals) which became entirely extinct by the end of the Permian period, about 250 million years ago. They are thought to have captured prey using stinging tentacles that sprouted from the tip of the "horn". Fossil horn corals are known from many locations worldwide, and some types show colorful radial patterns inside, and are cut for use in jewelry.
