The most common way that Bamboo Coral is used is to make jewelry. Red coral jewelry is a favorite. There is such a high demand for the jewelry that it is becoming more and more hard to find. Red bamboo coral grows in branches. While they are red in color, dye is used to help make the over all color more even.
Many people wear bamboo coral because they think it provides healing properties. Some think that it drives away evil spirits and brings good luck over a home. It has been used in the past to help women with menstrual cramps. It has also been used to help with many other various problems throughout the body, including; arthritis, bone growth, and digestive problems. These are just a few of the purposes that it has been used for. Many different cultures have different beliefs on where bamboo coral began.
