I spent the Summer in the Caribbean and found beautiful little dead coral at the beach.
To save sea life it's not allowed to bring any coral back home.
But I asked around and smaller finds (dead) will be tolerated at the customs.
For larger pieces you will need a receipt from the store to show to customs,
otherwise there's a chance you have to pay a fine -and- they will confiscate the piece.
One day these Caribbean jewels will be wearable! ;-)
The heart of coral is for my little nephew. And how funny is the elephant's foot!
