Georg Jensen ‘Double Tulip’ Brooch was designed by Georg Jensen in 1904 and is one of his earliest designs. This particular design has become an iconic Georg Jensen design and symbolises the perfection of design and the organic quality which he has infused into the silver. This particular brooch has the Coral cabouchon, but Georg Jensen made this design with many other coloured stones, such as amber, lapis, malachite, moonstone. Corals are major contributors to the physical structure of the coral reefs that develop in tropical and subtropical waters, such as the enormous Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Queensland, Australia. Corals' many colors give it appeal for necklaces and other jewellery. Intensely red coral is prized as a gemstone. Sometimes called fire coral, it is not the same as fire coral. Red coral is very rare because of overharvesting.
