Facts about Pearl

A pearl is a rounded, hard object formed inside the shell of bivalve molluscs such as oysters. Pearls can be used in jewelry but may also be crushed into cosmetics or paint. Pearl is valued as a gemstone and is cultivated or harvested for jewelry.

Pearls are formed in response to an irritating object such as a tiny fish, grain of sand or crab inside the mollusc. Making it deposit layers of calcium carbonate in the form of the minerals aragonite or calcite. These are held together by an organic horn-like compound called conchiolin.

Pearls are usually white, sometimes with a creamy or pinkish tinge, but may be tinted with yellow, green, blue, brown, purple, or black. Black pearls, often referred to as Black Tahitian Pearls are highly valued because of their rarity.

The iridescence that some pearls display is caused by the overlapping of successive layers, which breaks up light falling on the surface.
