Mother of Pearl

Two hundred years ago the Chinese hand carved, beautiful mother of pearl gambling chips were used at the gaming counters during the reign of the brilliant philosopher ruler ch’ien lung.

Nacre or mother of pearl is an organic inorganic composite material that is strong resilient and iridescent produced by certain families of mollusks and found in pearls the inside layer of pearl oyster shells and pearl mussel shells. Nacre is secreted by the epithelial cells of the mantle tissue and is deposited onto the inner surface of the shell. This smoothes the shell and defends against parasites by wrapping anything entering it in successive layers of nacre forming pearls a process which continues while the mollusc lives.

The pearl oyster is found in warm and tropical seas mainly in Asia. Freshwater pearl mussels live in rivers in the US, Europe, Asia and the abalone in California both black and white mother of pearl can be tinted to any color.

Mother of pearl, the shell of the bivalve mollusc that makes pearls is also considered by association with the pearl to have magical properties. Amulets made of mother of pearl are said to guard against evil spirits; to protect against poisoning; to heal the sick, and protect a woman’s virginity before marriage.

Testimonials

Just wanted to say thanks for everything. I am really impressed with the statue, the packaging and the service. It's absolutely beautiful!

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
