Virgin Island Fossil Coral Stingray

Our Southern Stingray is modeled here gliding past Basket Sponges, Brittle Stars and a Sand Diver (also called a Lizard Fish). A very typical view of one of these elegant reef dwellers. This attractive sculpture is a perfect gift for any tropical fish lover, keen snorkeler, diver or marine enthusiast. Indeed, purchase one of these as a gift for anyone who loves the underwater world, and especially the Caribbean. Just as sight of a stingray underwater excites all who are lucky enough to view one so our handcrafted figurine will equally stand out in any sea life collection.

Stingray Facts

An inshore dweller here in the British Virgin Islands, these relatives of the shark family can many times be seen lying on the sand close to the reef, where they often bury  themselves quite deeply, leaving only their eyes visible. When swimming, Stingrays move with slow and deliberate grace through the water and are rarely aggressive in spite of their reputation. The greatest opportunity for danger is in shallow water where swimmers may tread on one by mistake. This causes the natural reaction of an upward thrust of the tail and spine, which is positioned about half way down the tail. There is a venom sac which can break when the spine penetrates its victim.

 Of Rays in general there are about 340 species, varying in size from 10 centimeters to 7 meters. Southern Stingrays, Family, Daysatidae, grow to about 2 meters. They are unusual in that they have holes on the top of their heads, by their eyes, to take in water to their gills, thus avoiding taking in sand from the bottom. They have very powerful jaws with flat blunt teeth to crush up the shells of the clams, oysters and crustaceans that comprise their diet, but have no bones, their skeletons being made of cartilage like their cousins, the sharks

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.

IT'S UNIQUE !

All The Coral Studio's "Virgin Island Fossil Coral" line are made using Fossil Coral Rock from on land in the British Virgin Islands. Live coral lives underwater, and Fossil Coral can be found there too, but we use Fossil Coral exclusively gathered from on shore. It's absolutely unique because no one else in the world makes figurines this way. And when you own one of these pieces you will be displaying artwork that is ecologically friendly.


Each of our items is carefully handmade by artisans and skilled craftsmen and uses a natural product gathered and refined locally; therefore, variations in finishes, castings, color, inclusions, and detailing are anticipated and expected. Please make sure you review our terms and conditions before you order.
