I am willing to bet that the majority of jewelry makers use coral (excluding the metalsmiths) on etsy.

Sourced to be as non-endangered as possible.

I use pieces of sunbleached coral I've found washed up on beaches.

There are almost 26,000 pieces of coral jewelry listed on etsy at this time.

I wonder how many sellers that would be? I'm not good at math, so can't even tell you an average.

I have some sponge coral, too. I'm so confused, now, about coral. What's good what's bad. Is any of it okay to use?
