Currently Apple Coral is becoming rare and hard to find in the bead trade since coral collection and mining was banned worldwide in 1992. Also the United States currently has an import ban on coral from the Philippines. These beads are from a collectors estate and were imported from the Philippines sometime in the late 1960's or early 1970's. Apple Coral is naturally a dark brick red; however it lightens with exposure to heat or extended direct sunlight. This results in beads that look like apples with shades of red, orange and yellow.
