Mother of Pearls, the source of all pearls.
Also known as Nacre, it is actually the inside of the shell where pearls are created. Nacre is a substance created by the shellfish to protect itself from debris and outside intruders.
That is actually how pearls are made, when a grain of sand enters an oyster, for example, it starts surrounding the grain with Nacre. That’s how pearls are born!
Sometimes, those grains of sand stick to the shell and becomes part of it, as you can see in the picture. That is how the Mother of Pearls that I have looked like before they became jewelry!

The pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of queens. – Grace Kelly
