This unusual stone is actually the fossilized remains of coral that lived on the ocean floor hundreds of millions of years ago. Although several types of coral are found fossilised today, what is most exciting to rock cutters and collectors are the unusual colors and patterns that are preserved.
Since the beginning of the first millennium, coral has been sought after because it is believed to have mysterious, powerful properties. Egyptians believed coral contained divine blood, so they placed it in the tombs of the deceased to protect against evil spirits. Some believe that fossil coral may help promote self expression, and it may help people with asthma and other breathing difficulties.
