I am discussing PRACTICAL circumstances. And my belief is that red Mediterranean coral became "a thing" in Tibet, among Tibetans, around the time that the present coral industry (at Naples) was established and began trading their coral beads around the world. And I suggest that the popularity OF THIS CORAL supplanted the popularity of carnelian beads as "the preferred red material" for Tibetan beads.
