Gemology point: coral is a gem of organic origin. Only the branched limestone trunks of certain corals are used in jewelry. Its color is due to organic pigments close to carotene: varying from blood red to white, through the pink “angel skin”. Currently, most species of corals are protected by the CITES convention, the convention on international trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora.
