Pearls are formed when a small irritant or parasite penetrates and lodges in the mantle tissue of a mollusc. In response, a substance called nacre is secreted, and the creation of a pearl begins. Nacre is a combination of crystalline and organic substances. The nacre builds ups in layers, as it surrounds the irritant, and after a few years, forms a pearl.
Freshwater pearls are pearls which grow in a non-saline environment. China is the world leader in producing freshwater pearls and has been harvesting them for over 4,000 years. The USA is the other major source. Freshwater pearls appear in a wide variety of shapes and colours. As freshwater pearls are made from solid nacre they are also quite durable, resisting chipping, wear and degeneration.
Onyx is black agate. It is a beautiful brilliant black gemstone with a mythological heritage. Agate is a one of the most creative of all the gemstones coming in a wide range of colours and textures. Each piece of Agate is formed by the filling a cavity in host rock formation. The layering process by which these voids are filled can result in spectacular striped and banded stones with concentric circles like the rings of a tree trunk. Agate epitomises beauty, individuality and creativity.
