CORAL - is an organic gemstone. (Most gemstones are formed from inorganic substances, but a number of gemstones are from organic sources, that is from living things, either plants or animal). Coral is the "skeleton" formed by the individual polyps, plant-like animals, which live in colonies under the ocean. Coral can be found all over the world, but the bulk of coral used in jewellery making has always come from the waters off Sardinia and the coast of Sicily, in Mediterranean. Coral beads have been found in Egyptian graves going back 4000BC.
CRYSTAL - is a fine, high-quality glass invented in 17th century in England. In order to be considered crystal rather than simple glass, the product must contain at least 10% lead oxide. The lead oxide is attributed to providing the glass with extraordinary qualities of brilliance.
