About Bamboo Coral
Bamboo Coral is technically a different species of coral; it is not like Mediterranean, Sea of Japan Moro, or Momo Coral. Bamboo coral is usually found in deep ocean reefs and, like the name implies, have a growth structure that resembles bamboo. These bamboo corals originate from the South China Sea. Normally grey to white in color, it readily accepts dye. The normal colors for dying are salmon and blue and occasionally red. Bamboo coral dyes so well that it is often mistaken for the rarer Mediterranean or Japanese corals under close examination. Bamboo coral is completely natural and whole and it is not reconstituted.
Coral is a natural gem that is organic in origin. This is a very limited group within the gem kingdom with few members, including ivory, pearl, jet amber, and ammolite. Coral and pearls are the only true gems that come from the worlds oceans. Coral is comprised of 97% calcium carbonate and 3% magnesium with trace elements of iron oxide. It has a Mohs rating of 3.5 to 4.0 so wear it as you would a pearl; it is organic so avoid chemical jewelry cleaners.
This item is made of sterling palladium alloy. Palladium is a member of the platinum group of precious metals. By replacing a portion of the copper content used in standard sterling silver with palladium, our proprietary formula renders a precious metal with superior performance attributes. Sterling palladium is five times more tarnish resistant than standard sterling silver and has strength similar to that of 14K gold.
