Pearls are globular cysts of calcium carbonate (mainly aragonite or a mixture of aragonite and calcite) that form within the tissues of molluscs as a protective coating (known as nacre) as the result of an internal irritation, such as a grain of sand.
Most pearls on the market today don't occur naturally but are man-made or cultured by inserting an artificial irritant into the mollusc shell to create the pearl.
Cultured pearls and natural pearls can be distinguished from imitation pearls by a very simple test. Take the pearl and rub it (gently!) against the edge of a tooth. Cultured and natural pearls will feel slightly rough, like fine sandpaper, because of the texture of natural nacre. Imitations will feel as smooth as glass because the surface is moulded or painted on a smooth bead.
Cultured pearls come in many shapes and colours. Pearls are generally a soft iridescent white with hints of pink or grey, or iridescent black with tones of green blue or violet. Cultured pearls have the same healing qualities as the natural pearl.
