Meaning of Marjaan

According to some scholars Marjaan is a “small and delicate pearl”, while others say it refers to “precious coral”, also known as “red coral” (scientific name: Corallium rubrum), which has an intensely red color and has been used in the making of jewelry for millennia. It is mentioned twice in the Quran.

From both of them emerge pearl and coral. {55:22}

It is as if they [the huris] are ruby and coral. {55:58}
