Orange stuff on my LR

I got a leather coral today, nice purple color but at its base there is some type of bright orange stuff growing all over it, also a portion of this stuff has some orange spike looking things coming out of it almost like horns.

what is this, could it be a sponge because its soft and today this coral as been exposed to air and will be again when i propagate the leather later tonight. if it is a sponge, any chance on it surviving after being out of water.

im sorry for the poor picture quality i only have my phone's camera for now.

Purple leather...hmmmm. Never saw or heard of that before.

Focus Daniel-son...lol. Can't really tell from that pic, but I would guess some type of macroalgae and maybe coralline for the orange.

I`ve seen orange coralline before. I`m pretty sure that`s what it is. The other stuff looks like some sort of macro as mentioned. The cabbage leather will turn more pink as it grows and opens up.
