Bright red hard coral on a piece of rock

Hi all,

 

I got a free piece of rubble with some chaeto and on it there is an inch tall piece of hard, bright red coral(>). It looks like the trunk of a tree and the top is broken off. Has "graining," or veining on it as in the grain of wood, etc. I am sorry there is no pic--does anyone have an idea? I have looked for pics like it and so far no luck. It is really bright red.

 

Thanks,

 

Teri

an old gorgonia?

 

 

Thanks. The guy who sent it is guessing chili coral. It is broken off at the top--I have placed it in an overhang to shade it and it is hanging upside down like I read in these forums it should, but I only see tow things that look like they could be closed polyps. Anyone know if a broken chili coral (firmly anchored to its piece of rock) like this could survive?
