Since we care for species protection, our frames bear the names of endangered species.
The oldest living corals may date back to before Tutankhamun’s reign in ancient Egypt. Some species are thought to be over 4,000 years old.
Tropical coral: all oceans - in tropical, subtropical and temperate waters - Deep-water coral: cold-water coral reefs are found in all oceans on the slopes of continental shelves, on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and on numerous seamounts.
In general, numerous coral reefs are severely threatened by the warming and acidification of the oceans, especially the deep-water coral (very high endangerment status down to a depth of 2,000 metres (so-called fishing horizon)) and the red coral - listed in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species "CITES" (Appendix III): Corallium elatius, C. japonicum, C. konjoi, C. secundum (all China).
