Corals are the prehistoric fossilized and preserved skeletons of marine animals that gradually agatize over time. The entire process can take over 20 million years. The fossil coral forms through hardened deposits left by silica-rich waters.
The proper name for fossil coral is “agatized coral” or “agatized fossil coral.” Agate, with its silicon dioxide composition (SiO2), is a variety of naturally occurring chalcedony–or microcrystalline quartz–rather than a type of coral. For this reason, fossil coral should not be mistaken for endangered or protected reef coral or precious coral. Fossil coral is also much harder than precious coral. Most agatized fossil coral exhibits a dull to waxy luster and interesting skeletal-like ancient coral patterns, most often appearing in flower shapes.
Fossilized coral is a grounding stone good for bringing about change. It is also believed to enhance longevity.
Although coral is not a traditional birthstone for any month, it is a non-traditional zodiac stone for Taurus.
