|Comments||When one talks of Coral talisman for Mars, it is the ruddiest of reds that come to the mind. This Coral used for making jewellery or talismans – the ‘corallium rubrum’ (the red coral from Sardinia, Italy/ Italian red coral) and ‘corallium japonicum’ (Red Coral from the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Japan/ Japanese Red Coral) is very different from the protected species.|
Featured today is a natural and organic Japanese Red Coral of 4.96 carats set in 22 karat gold as a Mars Talisman ring with the symbol of Mars in relief on the shanks. The oblong Oval cabochon has a smooth, blemish free surface.
The color of the gem is a rich Mediterranean Ox- blood color and has a good jyotish weight. Corals are skeletal remains of marine polyps. They are mainly composed of Calcium Carbonate. It gets it color from the single celled algae called zooxanthellae that its shares a symbiotic relationship with.
Several million zooxanthellae live in just one square inch of coral. Coral polyps and their skeletons are actually clear or white and it is pigment in the zooxanthellae that gives coral more than 90% of its colorful hues.
Unprocessed Coral is matt and is polished to a smooth shiny finished surface. According to Vedic Astrology, Red Coral or Moonga is the gemstone of the planet Mars also known as Mangal, Kuja or Angaraka in the Hindu Mythology.
