Virgin Island Fossil Coral Hibiscus Collectible Figurine
Our beautiful Hibiscus, in either miniature or standard size, is the perfect gift for any occasion. With its delightful petals and curved stamen the Hibiscus has long been Virgin Island Fossil Coral's most popular collectible figurine. This is a new, smaller size model, introduced when we were commissioned to make a special model for presentation to 250 guests at a wedding here in the British Virgin Islands. Give this special gift as a Christmas present, a special birthday gift, a Mother's day gift, an anniversary present, a Valentine's gift, a graduation present or for a business presentation.

Virgin Island Fossil Coral Figurines are not painted...
They are shot through with color as they are made. Every figurine made is unique. The technique of the artisan in laying in the colors, the batch of white fossil coral prepared for use, the temperature, the humidity, all affect how the colors will flow. 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 craftsmen.
Throughout the world there are about 200 species of this spectacular family. Although size and color vary greatly, red, white, pink and yellow are the most often found. One species (Hibiscus Esculentus) produces fruits known and eaten locally in the Caribbean as Ocra. Sadly, each flower blooms for but one single day, but this lovely figurine from the Coral Studio will last forever.
