Pearls produced by molluscs whose shells are lined with mother-of-pearl (saltwater oysters and freshwater clams) have enchanted people with their beauty over many centuries. It is no surprise that the word has become a metaphor for something very rare and valuable. Colours can vary from white to black, with delicate shades of cream, rose, grey, blue, green and mauve also found, but it is the translucence and lustre of the pearl that is its most prized aspect.
