This was a surprise find at the turquoise booth this February. The guys musta decided to try out some new stones besides the turquoise they've carried forever. They call these little sponge coral "Apple". Not sure why, but it's good to pass along everything they told me. Maybe one of you will know. In truth, even the guy I bought from didn't! :)
As you see, these little coral look a lot like spiney oyster in color..These little ones, especially, are orange, with a bit of red cast in them. The price was so right that I couldn't say no and bought a parcel to offer you guys to see what you think. These are that coveted 3mm size that I very seldom see in any stone these days. I see these were cut recently, as the paper is all clean. I checked in the September '17 show and they had no more, so guess that the ones I have are all I will be selling For now, we can only smile and say, "Thanks" for the little treat!
Cutting coral can be tricky and I notice some of these are varied in size...but they stay real near to the 3mm size.

Shipping & policies
I normally ship within 24 hours of your order. It is easiest for me to send jewelry items through the post office...The same applies for most of my work, since it is seldom so heavy as to merit going to UPS or FED-EX. I share the cost of sending jewelry items with my customer. If it is a large item or supplies, I charge what I think it will cost to ship. Combining items always saves on cost of shipping, as we all know.
Paypal or Direct Checkout are the best payment methods for myself and my customer. They both accept credit cards and make it possible for me to send your item immediately. If you need to send a check or money order, I will send the item as soon as it is cleared. If you need to cancel an order, do it immediately, please!
Returns & exchanges
- Custom or personalized orders
I take a break from custom work from time to time, so I can spend full time in creative mode. I assure you I will contact you if you happen to order during that period of time. Usually it is planned during a "lull". Any other questions will be answered by yours truly if you care to contact me! :)
