Precious coral has been revered since early civilizations for its color, luster and texture. Red and black coral symbolizes attachment; and is believed to aid against natural disasters, disease, bad luck and jealous friends. The distinguishing characteristic of precious red corals and black corals is their durable and intensely-colored skeletons. Coral jewelry has been found in ancient Egyptian and prehistoric European burials. Coral grows on rocky sea bottom with low sedimentation, typically in dark environments - either in the depths or in dark caverns or crevices.
