This bright scarf in complementary colors includes a wide range of sea life while featuring the finger coral. Scientific name Porites porites, finger coral is a species of stony coral found in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, the Bahamas, and southern Florida and as far south as Venezuela. This coral typically lives anywhere from the water’s edge down to about 60 feet. This species is known to be some of the oldest forms of life on earth due to the slow growth rate of the coral. The coral is formed from tiny polyps that attach together at the base of their skeletons and branch outward. Scientists believe that some Porites coral are up to 1,000 years old and can reach heights of eight meters and widths of up to five meters. We often find pieces of such coral along our beaches, but I took some liberties with the color of the coral, which is normally much paler but the brighter blues make a great contrast with the bright oranges, pinks, and reds.

This scarf is delivered in our deluxe gift box, signed by the artist, and includes an insert with our Eden Shell story.
