Here is a piece of genuine vintage Japanese red Momo coral which has lovely traditional Japanese carving. All coral items listed here are genuine, 100% natural without treatment, they are all tested locally and in Ireland, no any dyed or re-constructed items, no any confusion stuff such as sea-bamboo or weed-coral. It is rich red colour with a orange tone, colour is so vivid and also changes with light.It has craved flower pattern at one side, a bit white growth marks can be seen within the carving, which is completely normal for Japanese Aka or Momo coral. It is in perfect condition with almost no sign of use in general, only one corner is chipped because I dropped it on the kitchen floor myself, please check the photos, and you can see it very clearly. The back of the coral is also polished, white growth marks can be seen, a tiny hole in the middle, guess it was a pin or brooch before. It is at size 23.5 x 17.5 x 4.8mm, and weights about 2.9 gram (nearly 15 carat).
Please do use a ruler to try out the size on your own finger, it might give you a better idea. It can be made into a lovely and elegant pendant, or maybe a ring if you do not think it is too big. It is so rare for such high quality and skilful carving, low price for sale because of the chip, however, the chip can be simply coved by while turning it into a finished piece.
However, if you do have questions or any concern after you receiving the item, I will do my best to help. The last, please take care, and stay safe.
