About Black Coral
Black corals are a group of deep water, tree-like corals related to sea anemones. There are about 230 known species.
Living, black coral's living tissue is brilliantly colored but its name comes from the black or dark brown color of its skeleton.
Did you know it's the official state gem of Hawaii?
Antipatharian coral is usually a deep water coral and highly controlled and expensive... probably the gem Hawaii is referring to ;)
|My loot of black coral from Miami
I'm looking forward to playing around with these branches and hopefully inspired to design more to add to my by The Sea collection.
Below are some inspirational pieces made from black coral. Enjoy!
