Basic gemstone information:
Unlike most other gemstones which are of mineral origin, Coral is organic, formed by living organisms. The hardness is 3.5 on the Mohs scale, so it is quite soft.

The main deposits of Coral are located in Australia, Malaysia and the Philippines.

It is interesting that Coral has been called the "garden of the sea" because it was once believed to be a plant. Coral is formed through a biological process rather than being a mineral with a crystalline structure like most colored stones.

The gemstone is also said to help regulate high blood pressure and is believed to be good for the heart. Many ancient cultures wore red coral beads in an attempt to heal their sick by improving circulation.

According to astrology, Coral gemstone is the birthstone of Aries, Pisces, Cancer, Leo, and Sagittarius as it aligns their energies and enhances their attributes.
