Fossilized Coral and Sterling Silver Gift Set
Fossil coral is a natural type of gemstone formed by ancient corals. The proper name for fossil coral is ‘agatized coral’ or ‘agatized fossil coral’, because, during formation, the coral remains are gradually replaced with agate, a variety of naturally occurring chalcedony, or microcrystalline quartz. When prehistoric corals are fossilized through replacement with agate, the fossil coral forms through hardened deposits left by silica-rich waters. The entire process can take over 20 million years and occurs only under very unique geological conditions. Corals are marine animals and it is their skeletons that are fossilized and preserved, often leaving flower-like patterns in the stone.
The creamy globes are feminine in contrast to the Sterling SIlver and brass components on this set. Makes for tons of interest and a stand out when wearing. Accented with baby pink pearls this set pairs with everything for daily wearing and at 20″ the Sterling Silver flat loop chain accents any v neck or lends it’s self to layering with others.
