We’ve always featured coral jewelry on our site because of its vibrant colors and connection to nature. To learn that coral could actually record pieces of human history as well was quite the discovery.

In an article published by Phys.org on June 3, 2016, Canadian scientists found that coral has the unique ability to capture human history within its skeleton. The article stated, “The skeletons of hard corals are made of aragonite, a calcium carbonate mineral. As the coral grows, it absorbs additional calcium out of the water in order to build its skeleton.”
In a recent discovery, researchers found an abnormal amount of mercury in the coral and were able to link that to a naval battle during the First Opium War between China and England, nearly 200 years ago. One of the ships that went down in a battle released a large amount of mercury into the water, giving the coral its unique chemical makeup as it absorbed the chemical and added it to its own structure.
This ability has proven to be quite useful for the fish population as well. As water becomes more toxic, it affects the fish and the people that rely on this resource for food. Coral serves to make the ocean a little cleaner with this unique feature. Some researchers have even composed synthetic coral that can clean up the ocean in much the same manner.
This discovery sent the team at SilverTribe over the moon in learning that coral has such a deep and intriguing ability. The spokesman for SilverTribe.com, Chris Anderson, gave a statement with this recent coral jewelry release. “We’ve always featured coral jewelry on our site because of its vibrant colors and connection to nature. To learn that coral could actually record pieces of human history as well was quite the discovery. The notion that people could be wearing a piece of history was something I really wanted my team to explore and that’s why we will be releasing a new collection of coral jewelry.”
Celebrating history and culture is something that Anderson and his team take seriously. The spokesman also stated, “One of our main goals has always been to represent culture and there’s no better way than with a piece of art that reflects the traditions, values, and even the history of a culture. We at SilverTribe.com want to extend a welcoming hand to new guests that also love art and wish to carry a piece of history with them wherever they go.”
