Staghorn Coral (Acropora Spiky Staghorn)
This is a piece of sustainably sourced coral from our own Aussie Waters. Named Acropora Spiky Staghorn for its thick, protruding branches of coral that resemble a deer's antlers, or the fern of the same name. A beautiful accent for the mantlepiece, or nestled amongst your favourite books.
22cm x 15cm.
Sustainable harvested by hand in Queensland. Coral is harvested from a protected section of the Great Barrier Reef recognised by Marine Park Zoning in strictly limited quotas from abundant and fast-growing coral species. Harvesters follow strict practices that leave coral bases and larval settlements intact. Responding to climate change and coral bleaching events, coral is not harvested from areas that have been afflicted by flooding, bleaching, or cycles to allow time for regeneration and growth.
