Gemological point: Coral is a gem of organic origin. Only the branched limestone trunks of certain corals are used in jewelry. Its color is due to organic pigments close to carotene: varying from blood red to white, including “angel skin” pink. For a long time it was traditional to give coral necklaces to young children to protect them from illnesses. Coral was renowned for being protective, particularly in the Mediterranean basin, particularly in Italy and Corsica. Currently, most coral species are protected by the CITES convention, the convention on international trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora.
Conservation : coral must avoid contact with products other than natural such as perfume, shampoo, shower gel, deodorant. You should also avoid areas that are too dry (long exposure to the sun, radiator, etc.).
