A Greek legend says that when Perseus cut off the head of Medusa, her blood fell into the sea and grew into red coral. Therefore red coral is supposed to protect sailors and fishermen.
Red coral is also ( like many natural amulets) supposed to protect against the evil eye, to defend against sterility...

I have never heard that legend, but I like it! I could look at this coral for hours.....I can't wait to see what you do with it.

Que vas-tu en faire?
J'ai chiné une boucle de ceinture avec deux médaillons à tête de Méduse il y a 15 jours. Je voudrais faire une ceinture entièrement brodée. Je penserai à mettre du corail, ou de la gorgone!
