Precious coral is a species of coral that grows on the rocky sea floor, typically in the murky depths of the ocean or in dark caverns. This gemstone was formed from a biological process thousands of years ago. Coral is a branching skeleton-like structure built by small marine animals known as coral polyps. The coral skeleton is composed of hard calcium carbonate colored by carotenoid pigments. Like the color coral, this organic gemstone typically exhibits a range of warm red-pink colors ranging from salmon pink to deep red. However, gem-quality coral can also be found in shades of white, black and blue.
