Let me put this as simply as I can: The pretty, colorful parts of coral only thrive underwater. Those are actually polyps that come out of their porous skeletons. Once out of water, they die, and the skeleton remains. These dead coral skeletons are commonly dyed bright colors and used as ugly decorations. So, there is no way you can harvest the color of natural, live coral.
