Coral is receptive and has healing powers. It regulates menstruation, protects and promotes wisdom. Coral is neither a stone nor a plant, but the skeletal remains of a tiny sea creature. We have gone beyond a time when we have to sacrifice living things to practice magic -- but if you find a piece washed up on the sea shore, you are harming none. It is up to you if you wish to utilize commercial coral in magic. The Italians have long believed in the powers of the coral and in Greek coral comes from two Greek words meaning daughter of the sea. Coral is worn to effect inner changes.
