Coral Beads

Coral is found in the Mediterranean Sea, Sea of Japan, Canary Isles and the Bay of Biscay. The most valuable of the varieties is red coral. Only the calcified external skeleton of this sea creature (genus Corallium) is used in jewelry. Coral has been highly prized, worn in jewelry and used as an amulet or talisman since before the time of Egypt. Many who use coral in this way believe that it can relieve melancholy and excessive worry. Read more about the Coral Story.

Coral is calcium carbonate combined with magnesia and organic substance. We offer high quality natural red Mediterranean coral. Beads are sold by the strand. Each strand measures approximately 16" long unless otherwise indicated. All prices are approximate, depending on the weight, quality, colour and availability of each piece. Prices are subject to change without notice, based on supply and exchange rates. Oxblood can cost as much as 100% of quoted prices.

Also, don't miss our rough coral, cabochons ready to set, finished coral jewelry and rare specimens for your collection! Please contact us for quantity prices on any of the materials listed below.
