The story: Both mystical and magical, coral’s history passed from the Celts who set them on their helmets and swords, to the Chinese who transformed them into miniature talismans. A symbol of fertility in Europe, coral was considered by Native Americans as a sacred stone capable of protecting against the evil eye. Whatever the symbolism you chose to remember, coral enchant both by its fiery color and by its symbolic richness.
