Corals are the ancient inhabitants of the Earth. They appeared about 500 million years ago. And although coral is not a precious, not a semi-precious stone, but only a polyp, after processing it takes on a very attractive appearance. Sea inhabitant - coral - suits people of the sign of Pisces. However, it is compatible with signs other than Capricorns and Virgos.
The most valuable corals are red and pink, but jewelers also use white, blue and black corals to make pendants, rings, earrings, as well as beads, commemorative figurines and figurines. The rarest and therefore the most expensive is blue coral. Coral colonies live in the Mediterranean Sea, in the waters of Northern Australia, the Canary Islands, Malaysia and Japan.

Coral has been attributed to magical properties since ancient times. Priestesses and shamans wore it as an amulet against the evil eye. It has been used to treat ulcerative skin lesions, heart disease, and to restore memory. Surprisingly, the coral was taken internally as well. To do this, it was burned and pounded into powder, and then added to tea. It was believed that this drink helps with intestinal colic and cystitis. The ancient Greeks believed that coral gives immortality and is able to influence a person's consciousness, saving him from depression, fears and nerve disorders. In Russia, red coral was called a kinglet and was used as a prophetic stone to predict the future.
Modern medicine has confirmed the medicinal value of corals. For example, the possibility of using white corals in surgery for prosthetics or restoration of bones in fractures is being considered. Scientists have confirmed the positive effect of gorgonian coral on the functioning of the respiratory and digestive systems. And some antique dealers claim that the coral serves as a kind of mirror, reflecting the state of health of the person who wears it. According to their observations, the coral changes color and acquires defects if its owner has chronic or acute diseases, and in healthy people it always remains whole and shiny.
