Pearls - History and Properties

 

Freshwater Pearls

 

 

 

History-Name

 

The word "pearl" derives from the Latin word "pernula", meaning sea mussel.

 

Pearls are known, used and treasured from ancient times. Ancient Egyptians, Aztecs among other cultures used them a lot. Romans considered pearls as a symbol of power, wealth, wisdom and happiness, while they believed that they bring sweet dreams to women.

 

 

Formation

 

Pearls come in many colours, from white to black, while the colour range for cultured pearls is even wider.

 

Freshwater pearls are natural, cultured pearls that are formed by placing a small bead inside an oyster. The bead is gradually coated, layer by layer with nacre, the substance secreted by the oyster that forms the pearl, shortening this way the whole natural process of pearl creation.

Pearls are believed to stimulate femininity and love towards ourselves and the others. They are also believed to manifest truth, innocence and serenity, bringing truth to situations, loyalty to causes and inner wisdom.
