SCIACCA CORAL: The famous subfossile coral discovered along Sicilian coasts in the Mediterranean in year 1875.
Big quantities were found until 1900. Sciacca is very probably a huge colony of red coral
that was covered by mud for many centuries and so it did not decompose and was not attached by enemies,
moreover the mud changed the colour transforming it from red to orange sometimes brown.
Sciacca is not in commerce anymore, often it is possible to admire this coral in Museums and among the jewels of rich Italian families.
Nowadays it is just possible to buy antique Jewels made with this precious coral.
