Fossil coral is a natural stone that is created when prehistoric coral is gradually replaced with agate. It is the corals skeletons that are fossilized and preserved. The fossil coral forms through hardened deposits left by silica-rich waters. This process can take over 20 million years.
According to metaphysical beliefs, fossil coral is a grounding stone good for bringing about change.
Since the beginning of the 1st millennium, coral has been highly prized as a gem because it was believed to have mysterious, powerful and sacred properties. The Gauls often used coral gems as ornamentation for their helmets and weapons, believing that it was a protective stone. Ancient Egyptians also placed coral in tombs of the deceased to protect against evil spirits because they believed each coral gem actually contained divine blood.
