Coral or something else?


#1

We provide senior relocation, downsizing and estate liquidation. As a result, we are sometimes asked to liquidate estate jewelry. One jeweler said this necklace was coral, another said it was not coral, but couldn’t tell what it was.


#2

Looks a lot like coral to me. Some of the pieces has striations that is intrinsic to natural coral.


#3

Thank you. Has it been dyed? The one cut surface looks cream colored rather than red.


#4

Looks like red dyed bamboo coral. You can purchase it at any craft store.


#5

Yes it looks dyed since the color inside is different.


#6

Thanks so much for your help!
