SOUTH SEA CULTURED PEARL BACKGROUND INFO: When a foreign object is introduced into the body of an oyster or mollusc, the organism produces a soft coating of calcium carbonate (nacre) around it, creating a pearl. The pearl cultivators/farmers insert a ball made out of the Mississippi mussel shell into the organisms to create cultured pearls.
SOUTH SEA PEARLS are large pearls, ranging mainly from 9 mm to 13 mm, with some larger pearls up to 18mm (extremely rare), are farmed in Australia, Papua, Indonesia and the Philippines, and are mainly white and yellow/gold in colour. They are mostly round or oval/drop in shape with medium to high lustre.
Not to be confused with FRESHWATER PEARLS which originate in the freshwater lakes and rivers of China.
