Intricately carved Angelskin Coral Rabbit pendant bead. This is a vintage Japanese figural piece, in the form of a rabbit or hare. It is a gorgeous pale pink color angel skin coral. There is a hole straight through the middle of the rabbit's back. One of a kind piece expertly carved from a single piece of natural coral that has not been dyed. It is 35mm long and sits 16mm high.
The rabbit holds a special meaning in many cultures. Japanese think of the rabbit on the moon as constantly making mochi, the pounded rice cakes they enjoy at the New Year. Besides being symbols of peace, docility and cuteness, they are also considered by many to be lucky.
