Records dating back thousands of years confirm that coral stone was used in decorative art objects. The coral meaning is believed to prevent ill fortune and offer protection when worn as coral jewellery. Dreams about coral are believed to foretell recovery from a long illness. Ancients believed that Mars was composed of red coral stone.
