Learn More About Pearl Beads:

Mother of Pearl is the iridescent lining found in many types of sea shells, while pearls are actually produced from an oyster or a mussel. However, they are both made of the same hard substance, calcium carbonate. Mother of Pearl beads are often dyed.

Blister pearls are pearls found attached to the inner surface of the shell. Sometimes their growth is artificially created by the pearl farmer, who attaches a plastic hemisphere inside the mollusk's shell to induce growth. These are called Mabe pearls.
