They are a wonderful interplay of shades of black, grey, white, green, yellow, brown, gold, blue and red! Why does this happen?

Known as molluscs, these animals ask for nothing in return, despite undergoing pain all the while the precious stone is ‘forming’ next to their sensitive skins!

Is the Pearl different from other gemstones?

Some people might believe so, because of the source of its extraction. Then again, when seen at first glance, it appears like a duplicate of the round and cold-to-the-touch moon in the sky, albeit minus its charming shine and possessing a rather rough texture.

As the evil spirits run away, your face and body will acquire a splendid ‘spiritual’ glow. Over time, you will acquire qualities like humility, serenity, wisdom and kindness.
