MEDITERRANEAN CORAL: “CORALLIUM RUBRUM”

According to the legend, the coral was born from the blood of the beheaded Medusa, that coloured and petrified the seaweeds upon which Perseus had placed her head, turning them into coral. However, science has another explanation: the coral is the calcareous secretion produced by little octopus communities, with support and protection function. These secretions, blending together, result in colonies.
In jewellery, the most appreciated corals, both for their value and beauty, are those from the Mediterranean Sea and the Pacific Ocean.
The coral deriving from the Mediterranean Sea is the Corallium Rubrum. It is characterized by solid branches of little dimensions and with a uniform colour ranging from dark red to orange-red.
An exception is represented by the Sciacca coral, of volcanic origin, whose colour ranges from deep orange to salmon-pink.

18 Kt GOLD

Pure gold, as present in nature, is a malleable material. So, in order to be used in jewellery, it must be alloyed with other metals.  As a consequence, gold can have different colorations: yellow gold requires additional alloys like brass, zinc and silver; in white gold, on the other hand, are used alloys of brass (in reduced amount compared to yellow gold) and palladium.
