Pearls are thought to give wisdom through experience, to quicken the laws of karma and to cement engagements and love relationships. They are also thought to keep children safe from harm.
Organic gems, Pearls are formed inside mollusks such as oysters and mussels. Often, they are formed when an irritant such as a tiny stone or bit of sand gets inside the mollusk's shell. A lustrous substance, called nacre, is secreted around the object to protect the soft internal surface of the mollusk. As layer upon layer of nacre coats the irritant, a pearl is formed. Light that is reflected from these overlapping layers produces a characteristic iridescent luster. This process of building a solid pearl can take up to seven or eight years.
Pearls vary in color from white to those with a hint of color, often pink, brown or black. The coloration depends on the type of mollusk and the water where the mollusk lived. Because the nacre is organic, pearls are very sensitive to extreme heat, acids, dryness, and humidity. Care should be taken when storing them.
The Pearl is the official birthstone for the month of June as well as the birthstone for the Sun Signs of Gemini and Cancer.
