Hawaiian Black Coral
The Au’au channel between Maui and Lanai possesses an 8 mile vein that includes some of the richest black coral beds in the world. The coral grows into lacy underwater trees. The “trees” are the skeletons of polyps that form huge colonies (coral is scientifically classified as an animal). Thanks to the swift Lahaina currents, the pristine waters, the depth and the warm temperatures, the coral in Hawaii grows as hard and mostly free of larvae and organisms, increasing its value. In 1987 black coral was designated the official “state gem.” The harvesting of black coral is extremely dangerous, divers have to descend between 150 to 250 feet carrying over 150 lbs. of equipment and with a limited amount of time and air to search and harvest . The danger is not so much going down as it is staying down too long and coming up too fast. A SCUBA diver down deep for a period of time needs to decompress by rising and stopping at different levels for about one and a half hours. After the harvest is done, divers cure the coral for a few months until it is as hard as ivory; ready to be cut and polished.
