About Pearls
Natural pearls are formed when a small foreign object, such as a parasite or grain of sand, becomes trapped inside the shell of an oyster. Then this is unable to be ejected, the mollusc secretes a substance called nacre to cove the foreign body in a succession of concentric layers. This creates a smooth, protective coating that, over time, becomes a pearl.

With associations to the moon, because of their lustrous moonlike qualities, Pearls have a history dating back to the times of Cleopatra and St. Augustine.
