PEARLS

Classified as a gemstone pearls are extremely unique, because they don’t arise from the depths of the earth, but from the sea. Pearls are the only gem material formed and found within a living creature. Formed inside of the shell of certain mollusk, (like oysters) as a defense mechanism against a potentially threatening irritant such as a parasite inside the shell, or an attack from outside injures of the mantle tissue. The mollusk creates a nacre or sac to seal off the irritation Pearls are small and often white but naturally occur in nearly every color under the rainbow
