Fossil Coral

Fossil Coral Gemstone Information

Fossil coral is a natural type of gemstone formed by ancient corals. Corals are made up of small invertebrate animals, known as zooids, that look like tiny sea anemones. They feed on small food particles they find in the water around them. 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.

Baroque pearl

What are Baroque pearls?

Baroque pearls are some of the most fascinating organic gems available on the jewelry market.  A baroque pearl is any pearl that is asymmetrical in shape as opposed to the classic round shape. Any irregularly shaped pearl is known as baroque, and shapes can range from minor aberrations to distinctly oval, curved, pinched, or lumpy shapes. A pearl which might otherwise be considered an oval, button or drop pearl but which is not symmetrical in nature, would be considered semi-baroque. Though baroque look different from traditional pearls, they have their own unique beauty.

What’s the difference between a brooch and a pin?

What’s the difference between a brooch and a pin?

All brooches are pins but not all pins are brooches. Strictly speaking, a brooch is a large, ornamental pin used to secure a cloak at the shoulder. The expression is also used for a similar pin worn simply as jewelry, generally by a woman.

Pins and brooches are both decorative pieces of jewelry that attach to clothing with a sharpened metal wire on the back. However, “pins” are the general category for such pieces of jewelry, and “brooches” are a specific type of pin. So all brooches are pins, but all pins are not brooches. Additionally, during the 1930s to 1940s, some brooches were made with clips rather than pins on the back and were called clips.

Types of Opal

Opal, derived from the Latin Opalus, means “the beauty of the gem.” Ancient Roman natural scientist Pliny once said: “On an opal stone, you can see the ruby flame, the amethyst-like stains, the emerald green sea, the colorful, seamless, beautiful.”

In Europe, Opal was known as a Roman Empire and was of great value. According to Pliny, the Nunnery of the Senate has a very beautiful opal. He is very fond of it. At that time, the ruler Anthony asked him to give it, otherwise, he would be exiled. As a result, Nominating chose to go to exile and refused to offer Opal to Anthony.
