Red Coral against Hammered Copper

It is said, Poseidon resides in a palace made of coral and gems in the deepest of oceans. This lovely pair of seahorse earrings surfaced with a bounty of Poseidon's Coral.

Coral has been used for decorative purposes and also regarded as a protective stone. Even today, red corals are still worn as a talisman to protect the wearer against evil spirits in many cultures. Coral, it is said, relieves tension and fear and promotes positive forms of social life.
