The Beauty of Pearls
The pearl is not a stone, but rather the crystallization of a substance secreted by an oyster after a grain of sand or some other foreign body has penetrated its she. There are pearls that are produced by oysters called fresh water pears, as well as salt water.
The pearl symbolizes purity, trust, generosity and innocence. In folk legends, the pearl is linked to femininity and Beauty. Some say that the pearl has the power to calm thoughts so that the person is free to direct all his energy toward loving relationships.
