Gemological note: Coral is an organic gemstone. Only the calcareous branched trunks of certain corals are used in jewelry. Its color is due to organic pigments close to carotene, ranging from blood-red to white, including the rosy “angel skin” hue. Currently, most coral species are protected under the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) due to their threatened extinction status.
