This vintage apple coral necklace has a fabulous look. It is composed of rare apple sponge coral graduated round beads. The beads have rich reds and vibrant oranges that are all natural, not dyed. Apple coral is porous and rough so these have a clear protective coating for durability and shine. Apple coral has dark brown striations that give it an exotic look. The beads range from 7mm-16mm. It is a beautiful necklace and it measures over 23 inches. It is finished with a secure barrel clasp.
