Coral has a rich history throughout the world. In ancient Rome coral pendants were hung about the neck of an infant for protection. Chinese cultures attributed it with longevity. Ancient Greeks believed it combated evil spells and poisons. Today, coral is mainly credited with bringing peace to its wearer. It is also believed to bring joy and happiness.
