Shop Coral Cabochons gemstones for jewelry design or making, natural Coral Cabochons loose stones for sale online.
Unlike other known gemstones that come from minerals, Coral is a unique semi-precious stone that comes from hardened skeletons of coral polyps in tropical and subtropical ocean waters. Naturally, Corals appear to be white, but natural forces may alter this phenomenon and create various color presentations of the stone including blue, orange, and the most famous and highly valued Coral stone hue, red. Other Coral stones may have grey and black patches in them as well. Relatively brittle, with a hardness level of 3 to 4 in the Mohs scale, Coral stones need professional gemstone cutting and calibrating (and to some extent, carving) skills for them to be used in jewelry making, as beads, cabochons and many more.
We have a wide selection of Coral cabochons to choose from, including the famous Red Coral cabochons. Some are smoothly-polished with glassy luster, but some are also fashioned to have creative rough textures. In this collection’s rare finds are the blue-colored Coral cabochons, which rough texture signifies the preservation of the coral polyps they are made from. Various Fossil Coral cabochons with beautiful fossil patterns are also in stock, which come as either semi-domed or faceted with two flat backs.
Jewellery pieces with Coral cabochons are among the famed presents, especially to babies, as they are believed to give protection from negative energies.
