    I dont know if some of you will remember about a year ago i attempted to make my own crushed coral with a hammer LOL well it took me long enough and the crushed coral was a bit sharp and not really nice well now i have gotten hole of a very big industrial crusher and i am going to crush all the coral i have been collecting for the past 15 years i will be including some pictures of how it looks like if there is some people in richardsbay i can crush some for you as well no problems but lets see how this works out i have to still decide on where i am going to be using this crushed coral and how fine i am going to be crushing it after it has been crushed i am going to be screening it through diffrent size screens like 20 mm and 5 mm and 1 mm screens
