This last year I purchased what would have been an estate of rocks
(if the person had already deceased - as it was she had just been
parallelized and could not work her stones). In all of her materials
I found several small boxes of pieces of black coral. I want to use
them some time in my jewelry work.
I think that if we checked around there would be a lot of dead coral
available for use by individuals with wisdom. How many of us on
Orchid have more than one piece we are planning on using.
Why shouldn’t pieces which have been broken off by storms or
whatever not be collected. If they are not collected, they will just
be ground up into sand and eventually dissolved back into the
minerals of the sea water.
