Coral may not be among the most popular healing gemstones, but it is definitely an interesting choice. Its healing properties are certainly unique.

Magical Stone

Coral is considered magical in the realm of crystals and gemstones. Underwater, it is frequently visited by the mermaid (see magickal totems).

Colors of Coral

Healing properties vary depending on the color of the coral. Coral colors include black, pink, red, white, and blue. Colors also range from pale to deep hues. 

  • Black Coral: masculine energy, can be used to promote or enhance male fertility 
  • Pink and Purple Coral: feminine energy, can be used to promote or increase female fertility 
  • Red Coral: aids conception, nurtures mother-child bonding 
  • White Coral: assists psychic development in children 
  • Blue Coral: assists inner child exploration and healing

Consider gifting coral for the expectant mother or newborn as a protective amulet. Coral comes from the sea and is associated with emotional healing because of its watery home. It is also considered a bolster remedy for physical disorders involving blood and bones, nourishing blood cells and strengthening the skeleton. You will often find turquoise and coral paired together in jewelry (necklaces, rings, and bracelets). They complement each other not only in contrasting colors that look pretty together but these two team up very well as healing partners.

Basic Remedy Benefits of Coral
