This is a beautiful selection of a Vintage Poca Coral. Poca corals are known for their fragile petal shaped arms.
Scientific Name: Montipora aequituberculata
Each coral is unique! Here are some interesting features about this particular coral-
~Has a cut base that allows it to sit beautifully on its own and is VERY fragile so it has to go up where no kiddos can get it or it can be knocked down.
~ Is a beautiful brownish tan color
~Its bigger size is a great piece for any coastal home.
~Best if displayed from the front side of the pouch
~ Very symmetrical
~We estimate this coral was collected in the 1960s
**In store pick up only for this piece, it is very fragile and can not be shipped**
Dimensions are: appox 21" L x 13" W x 13"HDecorating with Sea Shells and Vintage and/or coral is a very HOT Designer Trend. Coastal Styles never go out of season, and even if you don't live by the shoreline- you can display simple small elements of its beauty in any home style. I'm amazed at the amounts of beautiful sea life featured in top decorating magazines, even if it's not a Coastal Trend magazine, most photos contain some type of sea life feature in each photo! From a large shell on a shelf, to an entire room filled with the sea treasures!
We hope you display this coral with pride, coral is a precious resource, and now being treated like costly gems. We DO NOT support, nor sell, any New Specimens. WE ONLY SELL VINTAGE CORAL, and hope you will only buy the same.
