Interesting Facts Mother of Pearl

The Mother of pearl is also referred to as Narce. Narce is produced by some types of mollusk that secret epithelial cells of mantle tissue. This is continually secreted onto the surface of the shells forming a mother of pearl surface.

Mother of pearl may be found in freshwater pearl mussels, abalone and pearl oysters. Pearl buttons in the 20th century were produced using the shell of the great green turban snail.

The layers of nacre help to protect the soft mollusk tissue from parasites and damaging debris by encasing the particles in successive layers. This then forms a blister pearl if attached to the wall of the shell or a pearl if free.
