Because Medusa had the power of petrifying, one used to ascribe to the red coral the medical ability to coagulate blood. In Corsica, popular tradition gives it the power to resist the malevolent influence of the 'Evil Eye', casted by an envious person. This curse would mostly aim at people that are congratulated. Babies being the most vulnerable, custom is to protect them with a red coral hand. Your will find in thos pages our creations made with real Red Coral from the Mediterranean (also called Precious Coral or Corallium Rubrum).
