Corals are not really stones. Their origin is organic - they formed from biological processes. Coral is a branching skeleton-like structure built by small marine animals known as coral polyps. Gem-quality coral is related to reef-forming coral, but the most valuable coral variety is found in the Mediterranean sea. This particular specimen is a great gift for all mineral collectors, lovers of nature creations and also wonderful for beach-inspired weddings.
Coral is an alternative birthstone for May and a traditional gift for the 35th wedding anniversary. It is highly prized as a substance believed to be endowed with mysterious sacred properties. It is a symbol of modesty, wisdom, and happiness.
