Description

A refined example of red coral on matrix shows all its natural beauty.
Its red color and its mythological origin have strongly impressed the first Mediterranean populations who started to work it and export it all over the world.
Pliny in his "Naturalis Historia" described the coral saying that what developed in the sea opposite Naples was the most beautiful for its intense color.
This sample from Sardinia shows all its beauty, a charm that has lasted for millions of years.
