Coral: Sea living creatures called polyps are responsible for the formation of coral reefs. The coral itself is a calcium carbonate combined with magnesium. This naturally appearing material is found in many color variations with deep red (ox blood), pink (angel skin) and a creamy orange being the most popular for jewelers. Most of today's color comes from the Sea of Japan.
Turquoise: Probably no other stone or color symbolizes the southwestern mystique better than Turquoise. This stone has been used by Native Americans in the southwest since around 200BC. Some of the first items fashioned out of turquoise were beads and figurines with the incorporation of silver coming in the late 1800's. Turquoise is found in semi arid copper deposits and is formed when groundwater percolates through aluminous rock in the presence of copper. It is the copper that lends turquoise its greenish-blue hues. Turquoise symbolizes good fortune or luck to the Southwestern Native Americans.
