Precious coral is a species of coral that grows in rocky seabottoms, typically in dark environments either in the depths or in dark caverns. The coral skeleton is composed of hard calcium carbonate, colored by carotenoid pigments. Coral exhibits a range of warm reddish pink colors ranging from salmon pink to deep red; the word coral is also used to name such colors. Owing to its intense and permanent coloration and luster, precious coral skeletons have been harvested since antiquity for decorative use. Coral jewelry has been found in ancient Egyptian and prehistoric European burials. Most precious coral is harvested in the Mediterranean Sea, especially in Sardinia. Deposits are also found in the Pacific, in Japan, Taiwan and Australia.

I discovered Gem Select several years ago and after unsuccessfully trying to find REAL jewelry at the stores here that weren't completely out of my price range I tried online. Most of the sites had jewelry already made that were hideous. When I stumbled on gem select I found that I could design my own jewelry and pick my own stones at a very reasonable cost. And the most compliments that I ever had was for my single large amethyst that hung on a very simple silver chain. I think my total cost was about $64. I will never buy from anywhere else. Thank you Gem Select.
