Red Coral Ring in Marcasite studded setting. Ring size 6-1/2
Red Coral meaning:
In its natural state, red coral is rough and dull, but it takes on a brilliant high-gloss shine when polished. We think of the word coral as describing a color that is a strong warm to reddish pink. Red Coral comes in a whole array of hues from faint pink to dark red. And the color does not fade.
People have collected precious coral since ancient times. The ancient Egyptians had red coral jewelry and it was also found in burial sites of prehistoric Europe. Red coral was super popular during Victorian times.
Red Coral Properties:
Red Coral is an Aries stone, especially good for those born from March 11th to March 20th. And it's a good one as Red Coral helps us complete things - Aries people are great at start-up's, but not always as enthused in finishing up.
What is Marcasite: The name Marcasite is used in the jewelry industry in reference to Pyrite instead of actual Marcasite.
Nice addition to your red coral and marcasite jewelry collection.
