Red Coral Earrings
Red Coral Earrings Coral jewelry has been found in ancient Egyptian and prehistoric European burials and was especially popular during the Victorian age. Ancient Egyptians used coral pieces in tombs as protection against evil spirits in the afterworld, as it is believed to contain a drop of divine blood. Coral is highly-prized as a substance believed to be endowed with mysterious sacred properties. It is a symbol of modesty, wisdom, happiness and immortality. It is commonly known to remedy spasms of intestines, sleeplessness, and bladder stones. Coral can reduce stress and fears and combats foolishness, nervousness, fear, depression, panic and nightmares. Coral is used to attract success and wealth and strengthens foresight. Coral is a good aid for meditation or visualization. Coral has been called the "garden of the sea" because it was once believed to be a plant. Instead, coral belongs to a small, but important group of organic gemstones. Coral is formed through a biological process rather than being a mineral with a crystalline structure like most colored stones. Precious coral is a deep water coral that forms in rocky seabeds with low levels of sedimentation, typically in dark environments over 500-feet deep. Coral is slowly built by very small marine animals known as coral polyps. These tiny, soft-bodied creatures form with small, hard shells that accumulate as the colony grows. Over time, the colony begins to form complex branches and skeletal structures composed of hardened calcium carbonate, and colored by carotenoid pigments. These formations grow very slowly, often as little as just one millimeter per year, ranging in size from small, hand-sized structures to enormous coral reefs. Coral connects with the Root Chakra and elements Fire & Water. ⚒ Handmade with ❤️ in Maryland 🇺🇸 📨 Email us for custom orders!!
