Coral and Sea Bamboo

Coral is not a mineral but a hard calcareous substance consisting of the continuous skeleton secreted by many tribes of marine coelenterate polyps for their support and habitation. It is found growing plant-like on the sea-bottom. With pollution on the rise everywhere it is becoming increasingly rare, to the extent that even the most prized, the Mediterranean coral, is threatened with extinction.

Dyed Sea Bamboo Coral:
The raw material is sea bamboo coral, a kind of seawater plant fossil which is similar with the natural coral. The natural color is white and dyed in red & pink. Sizes of 2-14mm including beads, chips, nuggets, donuts, can be processed as full drilled or half-drilled, carved flowers or cabochons.

Sponge Coral:
Raw material of sponge coral is mangrove, also a seawater plant fossil. With natural red color and produced with a special kind of glue, finished products are charming and elegant
