Coral has been viewed as a mysterious gemstone, gifted with spiritual, energetic powers. Thousands of years ago, Coral was traded between the Mediterranean and India, countries.
Historically Coral has been viewed as a gemstone with mystical powers. The Romans hung branches of coral around children’s necks, to protect against evil forces, that might harm.
In Italy, coral was worn to protect people from the evil eye, and to promote fertility in women.
Coral is often used to make jewelry. It can be polished and given a phenomenal shine. Coral is found at the bottom of the ocean and grows in dark places. Environmental degradation in our waters has destroyed much of the coral reefs, and the demand for coral has grown astronomically, while the supply has decreased, creating an increase in price for coral.
Coral once abundant is now in short supply.
According to the Gemology institute, red coral is the most valuable of coral gemstones, but you can find coral in shades of pink, and even black.
Protect coral jewelry, by storing it away from heat, as heat can fade the colors of coral.
Whether you want to wear coral to protect against evil spirits or raise your mystical powers, or just because you like it, coral is becoming scarce and your jewelry will increase in value.
