Precious coral with an ancient history, Sciacca coral was discovered in abundance in the late 19th century in the bay of Sciacca, Sicily. Due to its different colour and form it was considered dead coral. Recent studies revealed Sciacca coral is millennium old Mediterranean red coral Corallium rubrum. Every time an underwater volcano near Sciacca, Sicily erupted it boiled all the living organisms including red coral. The action of temperature and volcanic mud during thousands of years gave this coral unprecedented shade, from orange to intense salmon, up to black with patches of yellow. Truly unique nature’s work of art.
Clara Stones uses genuine and authentic precious red coral Corallium rubrum. Our coral is sustainably sourced from Adriatic and Mediterranean Sea, completely natural and handcrafted using traditional artisanal methods and tools. No artificial chemicals or materials are used in the process to change its colour. Natural imperfections or inclusions are the nature of coral and organic materials and we think add to their beauty and not to be considered a flaw. For more info check out our Red Coral FAQ
