    Precious Natural Red Coral - Five pointers to a Smart Buy

    Natural Organic Red Coral

    Precious coral is captivating gemstone – with its smooth surface and robust color, the gemstone is absolute imagery of vitality and symbolizes youthful vigor.

    However, distinguishing precious coral from its look-alikes can be a hard task. For a layman the slick sales pitch and attractive form and designs can be overwhelming and could lead to a misjudged purchase. One has to be still more careful if the objective is planetary gem therapy. So how does one identify a precious coral? Here is a quick guide to a foolproof purchase -

    - Nothing can replace lab certification. A good vendor will give you a certified gem that lists the verified properties of the specimen.

    - Precious red coral measures 3.5 on Moh’s scale and has a specific gravity of 2.65- 2.68 which will be clearly stated on the certificate helping in identification. Precious red coral is an opaque gemstone, it has a refractive index of 1.48.

    - Don’t get taken in by fancy names like Taiwanese coral. While previous coral does exist there, it faces a crisis as reefs are threatened by pollution. An entire plastic coral industry has come up which produces look-alikes that could confound anyone!

    - Bamboo coral, which is also a coral found growing in the sea, but not precious coral is dyed and palmed off to unsuspecting buyers. Make sure you ask the right questions and do a minimum homework before making a valuable purchase.

    - Precious red coral will display a wood grain texture under magnification, which may not show in case of resin filled, wax treated coral, as it would give a texture too good to be true.

    A variety of techniques can be use to determine if the color of a piece of coral is dyed or is a fake. However, these techniques like acetone exposure or heating will destroy the specimen being tested! A lab report and a trusted source always hold the key to a good buy.
