Do not use a bone cutter. Those pieces have a tendency to crack. Saw only

You can also use a dremel with a good cutting wheel on it. Have pics? We can help guide where you should cut.

I've cut torch (or was it frog swawn) corals right though the head (accidentally of course due to a crack) both ends grew out, though at a much smaller size.
