Black Coral is the worlds finest coral and is the state gemstone of Hawaii. Fossil coral is a natural gemstone that is created when prehistoric coral is gradually replaced with agate. Corals are marine animals and it is their skeletons that are fossilized and preserved. The fossil coral forms through hardened deposits left by silica-rich waters. The entire process can take over 20 million years.
I’ve wire wrapped this black coral cabochon with copper wire and antiqued it to bring out the beauty of the stone. This piece will look amazing as an accessory to almost anything you wear!
The piece measures approximately 2” by 1”. I’ve included an 18” chain at no additional cost to you.
