Cup corals are non-reef building species that inhabit shaded vertical surface and caverns down to great depths.  There are only two species likely to be seen while scuba diving in Hawaii.  They rely upon capturing zooplankton as food and extend beautiful translucent tentacles at night.  Cup corals are also found in very cold water throughout the world.

Coral is a wonderful accent piece for your beach or vacation home but is just a stunning in more traditional settings.  We absolutely love mixing coral with our vintage industrial decor, we find it softens the look and the pop of color and organic shapes really add "wow factor" to the industrial look.

No harm was done to the coral reefs to get this coral. It has been aquacultured or grown in tidal pools to be harvested.  They follow strict regulations, just as the timber industry, and replant constantly the coral that is removed.

Treasures from Beneath ONLY sells ocean coral that has been deemed safe by C.I.T.I.E.S., to ensure that international trade in specimens of sea life does not threaten their survival. Much of the sea coral has been farmed for collection which helps coastal coral farming communities.

Please note in the photos, this is natural coral, there may be some irregularities and broken tips from harvesting etc.  You will receive exactly what you see here and it will be very carefully packed for safe shipping.
