Gemstone Type
PearlPearl is a gem that is created by a mollusk when a foreign particle enters its mantle, a layer of body tissue when the shell-secreteing cells are located. The animal builds, in layers around the foreign object layers of shell to isolate the intruding object from causing injury to the animal. Pearls are mostly cultured for jewelry, which means that pearl "farmers" introduce the foreign objects into the oysters, and then allow nature to take its course. Pearls are found in white, gray, yellow, black, blue, green, cream, and pink. Often times freshwater pearls, which are more common and less costly are dyed to create all manner of colors for jewelry at an affordable price point.
