Things have been a bit jewelry-centric (RE: girly) around here this week, but would you look at these two-tone coral necklaces from LEIF?? They’re stunning. And I can’t apologize for stunning, now can I. (via Cargoh)
When the coral dies it slowly degrades and dissolves back into the ocean as calcium carbonate, so even dead coral needs to stay in the sea. CO2 in the atmosphere is reducing the amount of calcium carbonate available to organisms so every little shell and dead piece of coral is required for calcifying species (such as shellfish, crustaceans, bony fish and corals). Buy and then throw back in the sea ladies!!
