Antipatharians (Black Corals) As the common name implies, black corals produce a skeletal axis that in some species can be jet black in color with a naturally high luster. Due to these attributes, black coral has for many centuries been used to make jewelry. It is not, however, an ideal substance for jewelry because, unlike precious red and pink coral, it is not stony in nature (i.e., does not contain calcium carbonate); instead, it is entirely organic and consists of concentric layers of protein and chitin. Consequently, over time, jewelry made from black coral is subject to drying out and cracking.
