Coral is not a gem, but rather the skeletons of a group of animals. It is collected by divers from the ocean floor. Corals usually form reefs off of tropical landmasses, although cold water reefs also exist.[1] Coral is a sacred stone to Charl and is attuned to the element of water.

a piece of blue ridge coral

Description:   Myriad calcified protrusions, twisting and intertwining, extend from a small stalk to form a piece of blue ridge coral. The protrusions form an irregularly shaped colony, with no symmetry or balance apparent. The entire mass is only a couple of inches across at its largest dimension, and all portions are colored a uniform pastel blue.


Rarity:
Average value: ~1000
Jars? no

a piece of cat's-paw coral

Description:   Myriad calcified protrusions, twisting and intertwining, extend from a small stalk to form a piece of cat's-paw coral. The protrusions form an irregularly shaped colony, with no apparent symmetry or balance. The entire mass is only a couple of inches across at its largest dimension, and all portions are colored a uniform creamy white.

a piece of flower coral

Description:   Short, twisting fingerlings of calcified material extend from a short base to create a piece of flower coral. Though the fingerlings seem to travel a meandering course, the space between any two fingerlings is quite consistent, and all the fingerlings extend the same distance from the center. All portions of the symmetrical globe are light bluish grey.


Rarity:
Average value: 55
Jars? yes

some polished black coral

Description:   With its feathery branches and deep black color, this coral conveys both fragility and permanence. The polished surfaces are ready for transformation into jewelry or other decorative items.


Rarity:
Average value: yes
Jars?

some polished blue coral

Description:   As rippled as a head of lettuce, this lavender-blue coral is an impressive specimen. Tiny holes throughout the skeleton give it a spongy texture and a rough feel, despite the rudimentary polishing.


Rarity:
Average value:
Jars? yes

some polished pink coral

Description:   Like a tiny piece of driftwood, this coral bends and branches in a pleasingly organic fashion. The color is an extremely pale, delicate pink with a slightly darker blush here and there.


Rarity:
Average value: 200-400
Jars? yes

some polished red coral

Description:   Branched like a knobby tree, this coral spreads outward and upward from a sturdy trunk. The deep red color is breathtaking, and the polished surfaces just beg to be touched.
