  • Other Types of Pearl

    We know pearls to be from oysters, with different types of pearls coming from different areas, or different species of oyster. These are the nacreous, beautiful pearls that we're accustomed to, but there are other animals that produce pearls too. These are far rarer and not cultured by pearl farmers. A pearl is defined as being made of, or coated with nacre. These two examples of other types of pearl are non-nacreous, and are often described as porcelaneous instead.
