Acropora Elkhorn Coral PendantRegular price 99.00 €
Acropora is a genus of small stony coral and a major component of coral reefs. Corals are animals and most obtain nourishment from photosynthetic symbionts living within them. Several species of this genus are referred to as elkhorn or staghorn coral due to their antler-like shapes. Growing in dense bush-like thickets, Acropora provide a safe hiding place for fish and other coral reef organisms. Acropora species are especially sensitive to coral bleaching due to ocean warming and loss of their algal symbionts.
The coral structure below the loop is 1.8 cm (0.7 inches) in diameter.
The pendant is available in solid sterling silver and finished with a sterling silver anchor chain to match.
