Comment: Two equal rounds selected from an antique parcel of first grade red-orange Italian corals, one of which we sampled and had tested by IGI (report under 'more images') during a Jyotish jewelry project requiring, amongst others, a big oval piece of natural red coral. During that year-long hunt for old stock of quality corals, we found this small lot of rounds on the side. The number of rejected fakes, treated, or low quality specimens we acquired and/or ripped from antique jewelry to test, meanwhile, were legion. We did find one in the end, had it tested and re-cut, but it's still with us (really long story) because of a white streak on it's underside. The same type of streak you can see on the image of the backsides of one here. These are natural indents found in every natural coral as shown and explained in the above mentioned 4.38, being the cleared living-space of the former inhabitant, which you'll not find in synthetic or otherwise faked coral. Although natural and thus a sign for quality, the very best corals for jewelry have as few as possible of these white marks on the upper side. Obviously, in very big pieces, like the 4.38 we hunted, the chances of an utterly undisturbed upper surface decrease rapidly. Neither of these 5+mm rounds have any white dots on their upper sides. Inviting simple studs, both shine in the best coral red-orange, in exchangeable sizes, shapes, heights, shades, hue, tones, and anything else you ought to look at when judging a pair. The quoted price includes two additional IGI reports. If you are satisfied with a signed and weight-corrected copy of the shown report, you can save $200 (meaning total down to $600) and invest them into a setting (e.g. white gold bezel studs).
