Pearl, the birthstone for the month of June, has been worn in jewelry for thousands of years. Early Chinese myths told of pearls falling from the sky when dragons fought, while the Greeks believed that wearing pearls would promote marital bliss and prevent newlywed women from crying.
An organic gem, pearls are formed inside mollusks such as oysters and mussels. They are formed when an irritant such as a tiny stone or bit of sand gets inside the mollusk's shell. A lustrous substance, called nacre, is secreted around the object to protect the soft internal surface of the mollusk. As layer upon layer of nacre coats the irritant, a pearl is formed. Light that is reflected from these overlapping layers produces a characteristic iridescent luster. This process of building a solid pearl can take up to seven or eight years.
