The hottest color in the secondary market right now is red coral. Although corals can be found in different hues, like pink, black, white, and yellow, red is the most sought after color. Red coral has been used in decorative items for thousands of years. It is believed that red coral has healing properties, prevents bad fortune, strengthens the circulatory system and nourishes blood cells. In addition, the color red is highly stimulating visually, lifting the mood and protecting from depression and anxiety. Whether or not you believe in the healing properties of red coral, one thing cannot be denied: its beauty.
