Mineral Family: Agatized Coral is a fossil; a remnant or impression of an organism which lived in the past. Fossils come in many different forms and, depending on what is being preserved, the fossilization process can also be very different. In the case of Agatized Coral, the Coral is completely replaced by minerals. In fact, the mineralization process can be so exacting that it literally replaces the Coral with minerals on a cell by cell basis, preserving incredibly detailed patterns.

Formation: Agatized Coral is the fossilized remains of ancient Corals which flourished millions of years ago. Typically when a Coral dies, it decomposes relatively quickly, leaving no trace behind. But occasionally, it may be quickly covered with fine-grained sedimentary materials, such as clay or ash. As the Coral decomposes, its outer structure is preserved and replaced by various silica minerals found in the sediment, including Agate and, less frequently, Opal. These minerals create the rainbow of colors found in Agatized Coral. While any kind of Coral can potentially be fossilized, most Agatized Corals from Florida are a species called Montastrea.

Mining: Typically mined from secondary deposits that no longer have their original relationship with the host rock. The majority of Agatized Corals are found in geodes that wash up on beaches.

History of Agatized Coral

Agatized Coral is both an Agate and a fossil of ancient Coral. Both Agate and Coral have many traditions associated with them and were included in lapidaries dating back into ancient times.

Healing Properties of Agatized Coral

Spiritual: Agatized Coral is a highly mystical stone for exploring the mysteries of life on this planet. It teaches us the power of interdependence and that we are all connected, none of us truly isolated except in our own minds. Agatized Coral reminds us that we are constantly changing and evolving, yet we also remain fundamentally the same, and this apparent paradox is both beautiful and good. Agatized Coral is attuned to the Root and Sacral Chakras and linked to Pisces and Gemini. It is connected to the element of Water and vibrates to the number 7 and 22.

Emotional: Agatized Coral soothes and quiets turbulent emotions. It reminds us to breathe deeply and to step back and look at the situation logically and from a neutral mind. In particular, it can help us to explore our relationships, noting which ones serve both parties in a healthy and happy symbiosis, and which ones are parasitic and dangerous to one or more parties. Agatized Coral shows us the Truth, without judgement or guilt. It then encourages us to gently but firmly adjust our relationships (and perhaps our belief systems as well) so that the Highest Good is served.

Mental: Agatized Coral increases diplomacy and cooperation. It helps us to see, understand, and design systems that work together for a greater purpose. Agatized Coral is a wonderful talisman for anyone involved in protecting and studying ecosystems, or any marine science. It also helps us to think analytically about how we can protect ourselves, our society, and our planet.

Physical: Agatized Coral is believed to help strengthen the skeletal system and dermis. It is also said to help restore the calcium balance in the body. Agatized Coral has been used by metaphysical healers to treat spine disorders.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

The Supply Chain is relatively short.

The Mine and the Lapidary are located in different countries, with one middleman involved.

 

 

The Mine

This Agatized Coral comes from a small mine in Indonesia, most likely on Java or Sumatra.

The exact deposit is unknown, but most likely caused only minor environmental damage,

and would have been relatively low risk for miners.

Sourcing Relationship

I have been doing business with this source since the earliest days in my business.  They are a major tumbling company and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source.  The owners visit many small and industrial-size mines personally.  For artisanal-mined deposits in sub-Sahara Africa, the owners work with Gem Dealers who deal directly with the part-time miners.  The majority of these Gem Dealers are women.

Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin.  For those that aren’t, I have to ask the owners personally.  They tend to get impatient with questions.  As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them.  However, they remain my preferred source for most of sub-Sahara Africa.

  1. Susan S. (Ohio)

    Arrived fast, as pictured. Well packaged. Would buy from again, Thank you!

  2. Becca O. (Michigan)

    I couldn’t be more blessed. This is my first time ordering from this shop, and I couldn’t be more satisfied, and jubilant. Julie is absolutely amazing to work with. Very well at communicating, loving, and very respectful. She has a gift, because this stone instantly connected to my energy. I couldn’t stop holding it. The energy was clean, and absolutely astounding. It has been on me every day since it arrived. In which it actually came a few days earlier than expected. Thank you again, Julie! I will definitely most defiantly be a returning costumer.

    I placed a special order for some crystals with Julie for my niece who graduated with a BSc. in Marine Biology. Julie was so responsive and helpful in creating a beautiful and unique collection for my niece. She even went out to the ocean to see what “gift” the ocean would provide and sent along a lovely piece of coral as well. Julie is very knowledgeable and the crystals are gorgeous – with most included that I would not have thought of! She also put in detailed descriptions of each crystal. You cannot go wrong! Julie is so passionate about her work and it shows from every angle! Thank you, Julie for your kindness, thoroughness and patience — and for your huge collection of amazing crystals!

    This was nice but it wasn’t the same color as the picture. I received a tan stone and not orange. I still like it a lot.

  5. Jennifer S. (Colorado)

    I loved all of the little details and markings on this stone! It’s beautiful!

  6. Gretchen B. (Indiana)

    Lovely

  7. Kristina B. (Missouri)

    Agatized Coral glows in sunset hues of red, orange, and yellow. When I choose one, my primary focus is on the subtle coral pattern that runs across it, since that’s what makes these stones truly fabulous! After verifying a good pattern, I then consider the color and shape of the stone. Vince ordered several different healing stones at one time, and when that happens I choose stones that I think look good together, in terms of color, shape and size. Usually that works out very well. In this case, however, it seems that the Agatized Coral was still a beautiful stone, but a different color than Vince had hoped for.

    I always want to know if a stone isn’t “quite right” and will do whatever is needed to fix the situation. My first priority is to my customers and to makes sure they get the stone they want and need. If there is ever a specific color, shape or size that you need, please don’t hesitate to let me know ahead of time and I’ll do my best to accommodate you!

    Was hoping to get a stone with more orange in it!Prompt shipment!
