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.
Items ordered were fantastic but, I received a note with the order about shipping. Am I being charged more for shipping? I realize the items were shipped from Thailand but if there are extra shipping charges please inform me beforehand.

My wife and I love Gemselect. We have bought Spinels, and Kyanite. The stones arrived sooner than expected and matched perfectly the description. A little back ground , My wife is a G.I.A/G.G. with 15yrs plus in the industry. She has worked at Cartier's (Madrid Spain) along with 3 highend retail stores in So. California. She was blown away by the prices when I found this great company. Highly Recommend. Sincerely, Mr. Richard...
I'm very pleased with the stone I received from Gem Select. The price is right, it came very quickly, and was packaged well. It even came in a small bag that listed the weight, quality etc. My only complaint is the inefficient way I had to find the specific bank for my credit card. Kind of old-school, but what the heck. The stone is beautiful and the website super easy to navigate. I recommend this company,
