About the stone:
Mother of pearl is considered an organic gem, a natural organism that has been mineralized while preserving its organic structure. This material comes from a protective layer of light colored lines inside the shells of mollusks in general. Known to some as the ‘nacre’ such as on a pearl; it is the shiny layer that forms inside of the shell.
Seashells were the medium of financial exchange in many parts of the world where metals were scarce or lacking altogether. Thought to be quite valuable, a gift from the sea, and to carry the life that it once carried itself.
