Fossil coral shaped like a golf ball

I found this on family farm. 4 inches long, 2 inches tall at tallest point.Most of the Round surfaces have visible capillaries and the flat side has dimpled golf ball like surface where it appears the capillaries come out at a 90 degree angle from plane of flat surface.

My first fossils

There is a reason these common fossils are the first photo posted on this blog. These crinoid, coral and horn coral fossil are the first fossils I collected many years ago near my home in New Jersey. Coral fossils are abundant in the yellow stones of the Kirkwood Formation. They whet my appetite for fossils throughout my life.
