The Red Corals of Zlarin

On the island of Zlarin, in the Adriatic Sea of Croatia, red corals have always had magical power.

Croatian travel writer Anita Palada takes us to the bottom of the sea, with coral hunter Mirko Milosević, and to the workshop of coral jeweller Miro Bešker. Here, he transforms the unprocessed aquatic gemstones to unique and acclaimed pieces of jewellery. Like a stone carver, Miro senses the energy of each raw coral and liberates the jewel inside. 

Here’s the story of The Red Corals of Zlarin.
