History & Facts
There is a current shift towards Aquaculture and Sustainability instead of wild harvesting. Particularly in Indonesia, the world’s largest supplier of stony corals and home to more coral reef areas than any other nation, many producers have learned that “If you collect a really beautiful, interesting coral, if you export that, you get to export it one time,” but “If you keep it and farm it, you get to export it forever.” -Courtesy of Coral Digest
At Luxe Curations, our team actively donates monthly to the Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL), an environmental NGO that is on a mission to save the world’s coral reefs. You can learn more at www.coral.org.
Please note: Understanding the importance of having a strict sense of obligation regarding coral reef ecosystems and their ecology, our supplier has always closely followed both U.S. and international import and export protocol. All documentation from the country of origin and CITES permits, when required, are submitted to USF&W and US Customs during formal entry procedures.
Please note that this is an extremely fragile piece of coral. As well as we pack this item, it is impossible to expect zero breakage. The average breakage you can expect during shipping ranges around 5%. Since there is no way to avoid this, we count this as an acceptable amount of breakage. Personally, we save our broken bits as treasures and add them to our shell collection. If this is unacceptable to you, we advise you not to order. However, if more than 5% breakage occurs, please contact us. Each piece is insured and our customers' happiness is our top priority.
Coral is a fragile, natural fossil which was once a living thing. They have been broken off of a Coral Reef in the process of collecting or harvesting, meaning that every piece will have broken and/or chipped areas. We liken them to people — everyone of us has flaws, but that is part of what makes us unique and special. We find beauty in the imperfection of knowing where the piece came from and understanding what it went through to get to us.
We understand if you prefer perfection — in that case, a realistic piece of resin coral would be a better option for you.
