Bamboo coral, family Isididae, is a family of mostly deep-sea coral of the phylum Cnidaria, class Anthozoa, and subclass Octocorallia. It is a commonly recognized inhabitant of the deep sea, due to the clearly articulated skeletons of the species. Red coral is one of the rarer types and is therefore considered precious in the jewelry industry. Bamboo coral, however, is not the same — naturally creamy white or gray, it is more prevalent than red coral and considered only semi-precious. When bamboo coral is dyed red to mimic the more precious red coral, it can be difficult to distinguish between the two.
