"Fossil coral" is a microcrystalline quartz stone that forms over millenia. Over time, prehistoric coral skeletons, made mostly of calcium carbonate, are hardened and replaced by silica or agate. The intricate patterns reveal the chambers where the ancient coral organizsms lived and the hardened exoskeletons they made during their lifetime. Agatized coral is not living reef coral and should not be mistaken for any endangered corals of today. Significant deposits of fossil coral are found in Florida and Georgia in the US and in Indonesia. It is the Florida state stone.

These particular fossil coral stone beads are cut in an organic wavy oval shape. The flower-like coral pattern is quite prominent. I chose a dark chestnut brown color jasper stone to accent the agatized coral. These neutral earrings are a little bit dressy but equally ready to accessorize your casual clothes, too.
