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.
Like all gemstones used for thousands of years, coral has acquired metaphysical, mystical and mysterious properties. Many cultures have varying beliefs attributed to coral but the common theme is protection, healing, relaxation and transformation.
Since ancient times, coral has been believed to be a protective stone, and was worn as an amulet to safeguard oneself from negativity, evil spirits and intentions. Like the nazar boncugu used in Turkey, coral was used in Italy to protect from the evil eye. Even today, many still believe in coral’s protective properties and wear coral jewelry for this reason.
Coral is believed to be a stone of transformation, peace and relaxation. For those trapped in negative thoughts about the past, coral is believed to be able to help you free yourself and move on. It provides a sense of calm and creates an environment of relaxation, reminiscent of the sea from which it originates.
Coral is also believed to hold healing properties, especially for women and children. It is thought to assist in relieving issues related to the circulatory and nervous systems, blood-related problems and strengthening the skeletal structure.
