Red bamboo coral is still used today as a protective talisman against evil spirits. It is often given as a necklace to young children; it can be worn by children to prevent accidents and falls. It is said to bring luck to the home, and used as a protector for those who work on or near the water. Red bamboo coral has been used in rituals of the sea as well as love and fertility spells. It can be worn to banish fear, nervousness, anxiety and even nightmares. Wear it when traveling over water.
CARING FOR CORAL:
Because of its softness, red bamboo coral should be kept in a soft cloth. It can be damaged by hot water, bright sunlight, and cosmetics and other chemicals. Some red corals, depending on the type of dye used, may "bleed." If this occurs, the beads can be washed in warm, soapy water and blotted dry with paper towels until the excess dye no longer appears on the towel.
