Coral Beads (assorted)

Coral is a hard stony substance made by millions of tiny carnivorous (meat eating) animals called polyps. Coral polyps are tiny animals that build protective calcium carbonate skeletons. Polyps create the basic structure of coral reefs with the help of single-celled algae. The natural red corals are rare and precious. The less expensive bleached white corals are often dyed to red and other colors for jewelry making. Browse our enormous selection of coral beads for your next jewelry and design project.
