But in general, Coral jewellery is said to make people feel tranquil and calm – especially women evidently, and so it is often given as a present for Mothers Day, and Birthday celebrations amongst ladies, girls and women. Coral is said to have protection qualities and to help restore harmony in times of emotional conflict and to work against depression.

Some say that Coral is like a wise teacher – teaching us to value life – and our place in it. Indeed, Coral is said to protect children and is given as a gift to children in many countries.

From the International Colored Gemstone Association:

Corals come from nature, living in the waters around Japan, Taiwan and in the Malaysian Archipelago, in the Red Sea, in the Bay of Biscay and around the Canary Islands, as well as in north-east Australia and the Midway Islands. In the Mediterranean, there are coral banks in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the coast of Sardinia, off Tunisia and Algeria, former Yugoslavia and Turkey. Unprocessed, coral is matt. It is not until it has been polished that it takes on that beautiful shine. Red is considered the most sought after coral but they can also be found in pink, white, yellow and black.

Coral has been used for decorative purposes and esteemed as a protective stone since time immemorial. Even today in many cultures, red corals are still worn as talismans to protect the wearer against evil spirits. This ancient faith in the protective and invigorating force of coral is perpetuated by the custom of putting a necklace of red corals round the neck of a small child. Indeed, young girls are often given a fine coral necklace as their first piece of jewellery. Thousands years ago, ancients believed that coral offered protection from skin disease when worn as a necklace. If you have a dream about coral, some people believe that it foretells the recovery from a long illness. Coral is supposed to be a good aid for meditation or visualisation.

Yet coral is more than that: in some wonderful way coral reflects the complexion of its wearer, developing a positively irresistible effect on the bare skin. Coral is one of the most attractive decorative materials imaginable. Again and again, it inspires international designers to fantastic creations.

Modern gemstone therapists highly esteem its positive effects. Coral, they say, relieves tension and fear and promotes positive forms of social life. These modern believers think that coral can calm and improve life. Coral is believed to be useful in calming tempers and compulsive disorders. It is also though to help remove depression.

Coral is said to be good for spiritual balance.
