Coral

CORAL: Traditionally, an Indian woman wears red coral bead necklaces to
maintain good health, marital happiness and longevity. She would then be
blessed with children, intelligence, fair fortune and success. White coral,
worn as a necklace, was thought to stop abdominal colic and indigestion. A
concoction of coral, emerald, and saffron, wrapped in the skin of a cat was,
in bygone days, employed to combat fever. Believed to have a special
affinity with woman, coral was believed to change its hue from dep red to
pale in accordance with the menstrual cycle. It was also said to avert
tempests at sea when tied to the mast with sealskin, to ward off the evil
eye, to repel rabies and cure madness. Red coral instils courage when worn
and protects the wearer from calamities like thunder, floods and fire. When
worn as a ring, it is set in gold, silver or copper and worn on the first or
4th finger of the right hand when Mars is in Capricorn or Aries. People born
on the 2,5,7,8,11,14,15,17,20,23,25,26 and 29th of the month do not wear
coral.
