Coral is a marine organism, actually a symbiosis of microscopic animals (polyps) and algaes (zooxanteles). The colony is formed by constructing a skeleton at a speed which varies according to the species, sometimes very slowly.
Only certain species fournish a useable material. The color varies and is most often soft rose to deep red, containing more or less brown, and can sometimes, very rarely, approach black.
Coral is among the five sacred stones of Tibetans and American Indians. It represents the energy of the vital force, and is linked to the redtiglé. This stone is associated with Amitayus, and is particularly beneficial for long-life practices.
In particular, dark red coral is said to warm and stimulate blood circulation.
The perls of this mala are in genuine and authentic coral, some of them are 100% natural, while others have been tinted, to enhance their color and make it uniform. The perles have been sorted and selected in order to obtain this scarlet red color, with some orange hues.
