All coral is made up of calcium carbonate which, over time, builds up as the skeletal remains of tiny sea creatures' homes in the ocean. Corals can be any number of colors, from red, white, pink and blue to the rare black. Red bamboo coral grows in branches, similar to bamboo stalks. It is matte in appearance, with small holes, scratches or cracks. It is often filled with wax to smooth imperfections. Dye is used as well to bring about a more uniform color. Red bamboo coral comes from the South Pacific. Corals have a hardness of 3.5 on the Mohs scale, which makes them soft and easily scratched or broken.
