Hammer and chisel if the rock/skeleton is too thick for a dremel. Unless you have access to a band saw.

i bet a hack saw would work, galaxia skeleton seems quite brittle compaired to other coral. Its really light too which leads me to believe it's hollow but I've never cut into mine...

I'm pretty sure it is hollow mine looks like a massive rock but under it is all hollowed out I think if I fragged it right in the middle I'd split it in half my biggest concern is that I'll kill it or something iv had this coral for a while the guy I got it off had it bleached and iv bought it back so I don't want to lose it
