LuxeSci Show Notes: S1 Episode 19: Coral - Why You Shouldn't Buy Coral Jewlery

This is a bit of a throwback episode where Dr. Lex does the science-splaining and Dr. Dimos provides the plucky comic relief. On this episode we discuss the what coral is used in jewelry, how coral survive in tropical and deep waters and more nerdy facts. We also delve into why buying coral jewelry isn't the best idea and how scientists are using genetics to help with illegal coral trade. Of course we also have our helpful glossary of scientific terms and a fun fact for your next cocktail party.
