Coral, which has been used as jewelry and ornaments from past to present, may contain pure calcium as well as magnesium carbonate and trace amounts of some organic substances in its chemical composition. It shines like glass when polished. In jewelry manufacturing, red, pink and white corals are the most popular. Among them, the most valuable is red coral. Coral, which is sensitive to acids and heat, can discolor you during use. The places where the coral stone is extracted the most are the coasts of Africa, Australia, the West Indies, Malaysia, Italy, Algeria, Sicily, Spain, the coasts of Japan and the Pacific Ocean coasts.
It has the appearance and hardness of natural coral, grain or wood. The first distinguishing feature of natural coral is its color and rough and stained surface. Smooth corals are either corrected by processing or artificial, that is, fake. The ones with an overly pronounced color are dyed, and the ones with no stains are most likely fake.
