Opalized pearl in real life.

  • The first ever recorded opalized pearls were found by a group of opal miners in early 2016.
  • They are 65 million years old and formed during the Cretaceous period.
  • Opalization occurs when chemicals in ground waters replace bone, shell or wood with opal. This is a process called permineralization.
  • Pearls, as well as nacre, are chemically made of calcium carbonate and conchiolin. They're mainly comprised of aragonite or a mixture of aragonite and calcite.
    • Conchiolin is an organic protein that acts as a form of glue or adhesive.
    • Pearls have a hardness of 2½ - 4½ and has an Orthorhombic crystal structure.
  • When irritants get inside the mollusk, it will excrete layers of liquid (called nacre) to coat it. This is how pearls are formed.
  • Pearls are birthstones for June.
    • They are also the national gemstone of the Philippines.
  • The name pearl comes from the Latin world perna meaning "leg". This is in reference to the ham-leg shape of the bivalve mollusk.
  • Pearls metaphysically represent purity, integrity, and loyalty. It gains one wisdom from experience and help cement engagements and love.
