The deep red coral is collected in the sea near Kochi, Japan. With its limited resources, the price and demand of this deep red coral gemstone increases every year. Rough corals when first harvested have no distinct shine and are generally matt. They require a skillful craftsman to polish and achieve its’ high shine to reveal the coral’s original colour and vibrancy. It is encouraged to polish this gemstone every few years as the original polish will decrease when the coral is exposed to any heat or acidic environment. In China & Japan, coral also plays a role as an amulet.
