Precious coral or red colored coral are common names, the distinguishing characteristic of precious corals is their durable and intensely colored red or pink skeleton, which is used for making jewelry.The origin of coral is explained in Greek mythology by the story of Perseus. Having petrified Cetus, the sea monster threatening Andromeda, Perseus placed Medusa’s head on the riverbank while he washed his hands. When he recovered her head, he saw that her blood had turned the seaweed (in some variants the reeds) into red coral. The Romans used red coral to heal wounds caused by snakes and scorpions. The stone is believed to benefit the wearer with qualities like perseverance, courage, the ability to face and solve troubles, enhancing stability in one’s life thus was highly recommended to newly wedded couples as well as those who planned to have children.
