Beautiful hand carved 100% nature un-dyed Red Japanese Momo coral (the hardest and strongest and the best coral in the world), deeply cared into 3D flowers very rare for the size and detailed hand crafted, you will never see this be done nowadays. It is in deep colour which very rare, show slightly deep orange but only directly under the sunlight.
Hard to capture the colour, it is more beautiful than the photos. Please refer to photo see the details and size, very good size and its weight just over 13 grams. Very rare to see such big and thick piece, also in very rare even deep red tone. Also very very high jewellery grade coral, even looks a bit old but the quality is similar like Aka coral, after re-polishing will be not much different from Aka. Very rare shape as well, it is like a complete thick round ring shape, and the craftsman worked along with the shape with braking it apart.Very fine growth mark not visible at all, just white branch growth marks can be seen at the edge of the flowers and the back which it is normal sign of momo or Aka, 100% natural, you can enlarge the photos to check out, which it is common for such big piece, please note that the back of tis flower is not very flat, can see natural growth marks, branch marks and dent, but still suitable to set on silver or gold for pendant or brooch, too big for ring anyway. There is not cracks or chips on the surface, but a couple of insect bites on the edge which you probably hard to see, the surface is not so shining after so many years, might need re-polishing, up to new owner. If you are good with hands and it can be set on gold to turn it into a luxury ring or beautiful pendant or brooch.
