The Victorians seemed to have an amazing eye for beautiful gems. Coral was very popular in their jewellery. However the Egyptians were just as good at using the gorgeous stone too. It has been found in tombs to protect against any afterworld evil spirits. The necklace on the right is ancient Egyptian from the tomb of Mena, Naqada or Abydos Cemetery B, Egypt. It has beads of Carnelian, coral, and garnet and dates to the 1st Dynasty, c. 3000 BCE. They believed that the stone contained divine blood. The protection attribute of coral has been used by the Gauls, Romans and even 20th century Italians. Red coral sometimes called noble coral is the most desirable coral to be used in jewellery.

I always thought coral was a plant but it is not a mineral. It belongs to a small but important group of organic gemstones. They are marine invertebrates that usually live in small colonies. They secrete calcium carbonate to form a hard skeleton and therefore the stone is not as hard or as durable as some stones but it is similar to fluorite.
However this beautiful coral and pearl Victorian brooch has withstood time and wear and is currently on sale. So if you fall in love with it and have £1565 to spare then you can click on the photo to go to the site to buy it.
Please note that the stone attribute section is not proven to be a direct outcome of wearing or owning the stone. It is also not a prescription and should not be used alone to treat health problems.
