Virgin Island Fossil Coral Boxes are not painted......
Virgin Island Fossil Coral boxes are not painted — they are made with plain and colored coral. Every box made is unique. First the relief is made and then, afterwards, the base of the lid , tinted with a different color, is added at the same time as the bowl is made. Every box is completely hand made. The technique of the artisan in laying in the relief, the batch of white fossil coral prepared for use, the temperature, the humidity, all affect how the colors and the coral will flow and affect the final result. No two will ever be exactly the same. All our pieces are all individually made. The Coral Studio employs no mass production techniques, only skilled craftspeople.
Honey Bee Facts
Apoidea Hymenoptera, the common honey bee, has about 20,000 species in its order. Familiar to us as they go about their busy way, bees are probably more use to the world as pollinators of flowers than as producers of honey and wax. Having evolved together through the ages, true symbiosis exists, and neither the bees nor the flowers they pollinate as they gather nectar can survive without each other.
Worldwide there are about 80 species of this family, the Pomacanthidae.
