A beautiful fossilised coral gemstone which a mind boggling history. Fossilised coral is a natural gemstone that is created when prehistoric coral is gradually replaced with agate. Agates are semi-precious gemstones and are composed of varying types of minerals. Corals are marine animals and it is their skeletons that are fossilized and preserved. So don’t worry these stones are NOT made from endangered corals. Most fossilised corals found today can be anywhere from 100,000 to 25 million years old, the oldest being 450,000 million years old. The stone is set in recycled sterling silver and hangs on an 18 inch sterling silver snake chain. The jewellery comes in a cotton gift bag and is delivered in plastic free packaging. 5% of profits goes to support marine conservation charities, this includes a donation made to Surfers Against Sewage who campaign for plastic free seas and one coral fragment being replanted by Coralive.org for every purchase made. There’s also an option at checkout to upgrade your coral fragment to a bigger one for just £5. All proceeds will go to Coralive and you will receive a downloadable thank you to share on your social media stories. If this is a gift for someone else you can also buy a mini ‘Ocean Goddess’ giftcard at the checkout.
