Mother Of Pearl

She is often referred to as the “Queen of Gems,” and the mother of pearl has been used in jewelry since ancient times. It carries a spiritual meaning that goes beyond physical beauty. Each color of pearl can bring about a different energy, so be sure to select the one that resonates with you most. A white cultured pearl symbolizes purity and while pink brings out feelings of success and fortune. It is believed that mother of pearl shell offers soothing, motherly protection from negative energy and love.

One reason why it’s called “mother of pearl” is that the nacre-lined shells are the belly in which pearls are produced. Indeed, mother of pearl and actual pearl gemstones do share some common characteristics. When an irritant gets trapped inside a mollusk, the mollusk, in order to protect itself, coats this irritant with layers upon layers of “mother of pearl” (nacre) until it develops into a pearl three to four years later.
