The coral is considered a lucky charm since antiquity. The following was recorded around approx. the 17th century in Venice: "Aus dem 17. Jahrhundert etwa ist aus Venedig überliefert: „Portati dovunque l’huomo sia, ò in casa, ò in nave, scaccia le cattive ombre de gli spiriti, sogni, fulmini, venti, e tempeste e gli diffende da ogni assalto di fiere." - "Wherever a human may go, whether he is at home or travelling by ship - the coral banishes the evil shadows of ghosts, bad dreams, lightning, winds and weather and will guard you from any peril" (Isabella Palumbo Fossati Casa: Intérieurs véitiens à la Renaissance. Maisons, société et culture, Paris 2012, S. 276).
