Mediterranean red coral is becoming extremely rare and valuable because of world-wide over harvesting, as well as climatic changes in the seas. This coral is valued because both the interior and exterior of the material is vibrant red. This deep red coral was concentrated around Sardinia in the Mediterranean Sea. For decades, Indian traders imported the distinctive red coral and supplied Native American jewelers and silversmiths.
