Coral comes in a range of colours from white through pink and orange to brown. Considered a protection for travellers especially when moving from one country to another and a protection against negativity. A balancing Stone for people in the caring professions such as nursing or social work. Originally thought to cure madness and bring wisdom.
Unlike most other gemstones which are of mineral origin, Coral is organic, formed by living organisms. It forms from branching, antler-like structures created from coral polyps in tropical and subtropical ocean waters. When the coral polyps die, the hardened skeleton remains, and this material is what is used as a gemstone.
