Coral Gemstone Meanings, Properties & Qualities

Found in a range of colours - white, red, black to blue, and brown, although red is considered the most sought after colour. Not any type of coral can be to create the red jewellery we all know. Only two types; corallium rubrum and corallium japonicum. Found in the Mediterranean sea - off the coat of Australia, the South Pacific, the waters of Japan and Africa.

Coral is chemically similar to pearls and has been known to grow as tall as 40cm, with branches 4cm thick. It is polished to create the coral jewellery we see in shops. Once believed to be a plant, coral is actually made up of living animals called 'polyps'. Coral is the accumulated skeletal masses from these polyps.

Looking after Coral

Coral has been used in jewellery since prehistoric times. Found in Celtic tombs and a symbol of wealth in China. Used by Tibetan Lamas to this day as coal rosaries. Coral is one of the seven treasures in Buddhist scriptures.

Used to decorate art objects dating back thousands of years. Dreams of coral often indicate a recovery from a long term illness.
