Red Coral is among the most ancient of gem materials, used for adornment since prehistoric times.
Coral is an organic gem, calcium carbonate with a trace of carotene, deposited by tiny sea creatures
living in the depths of warm seas in huge colonies. It grows in branches that look like underwater trees.
Most coral used in jewelry is found in the Mediterranean Sea or in the Pacific off Japan and Taiwan.
Coral was long thought to be a powerful talisman that could stop bleeding, protect from evil spirits, and ward off hurricanes. The ancient belief in the protective and invigorating powers of coral lives on in the traditional present of red coral necklaces for small children.
Coral is one of the seven treasures in Buddhist scriptures and Tibetan Lamas use coral rosaries.
Coral trees were once brought to the surface by means of drag nets. But today, the harvesters use more environmentally sound methods: deep-sea divers collect the branches by hand. In the next step, the pieces are cleaned, sorted, and sawed into pieces. Most coral is set into inlays, beads, carvings, or cabochon shapes.
Coral has an even color and has no fissures, spots, bands or cavities. Since untreated Coral is rare, it is valuable.
Special care is required for coral . A soft and porous gem, coral scratches and abrades easily and chlorine, alcohol, ammonia, nail polish remover, and other chemicals can damage it. Remove coral rings when washing and moisturizing your hands.
Avoid exposing your coral to extreme temperatures. It may gradually change color from everyday wear.
As an organic gem, coral is softer than other gem materials and should be stored away from other gemstones to prevent scratches. To clean coral, wipe it gently with a moist soft cloth.
Coral is believed to cure blood related diseases. Red coral is very helpful in making the wearer courageous.
It is also believed to reduce the troubles caused due to wrong/harmful positions of Mars.
Coral is a lucky gem for all those who are born under number 9. Mars rules this number. People born on 9th,
18th, 27th of any month are governed by this number.
Coral is one of the five sacred stones of the Tibetans and the American Indians.
It represents the business of gold, steel, agriculture, weapons and property.
Police & defense services, chemical studies, surgery, dental treatments are the professions lead by Mars.
