Most people think that any type of coral can be used for jewelry, but, in fact, only two species ("Corallium rubrum" and "Corallium japonicum") are used to make the familiar red jewelry. Pearls and coral are chemically similar (both are over 90% carbonic limes). Coral can grow up to 40 cm tall with branches that are only 4 cm thick. It is from this small part of the coral that materials are harvested to create jewelry. At first glance, the coral is naturally dull with matte finish. Only after polishing coral, does the glossy luster shine. It has a wide range of color from red to white, blue to black and brown.Do not use any cosmetic products, hot water or bright intense light around coral. You should also avoid any hard blows or chemicals when wearing coral because of how porous the material is. It is a very popular first piece of jewelry for young girls, and is used to ward off evil spirits, soothe fears and tension. It helps aid difficulties of the lungs and digestion tract. Coral has been used as jewelry since prehistoric times. Coral has been found in Celtic tombs, and was a symbol of wealth in China during the Qing dynasty. Tibetan lamas still use coral rosaries, as coral is one of the seven treasures in Buddhist scriptures.
