A genuine pearl is born from the pain that a parasite generates on the inside of a marine oyster. As time goes by, it has to heal that irritation and it does so through a scar, that then transforms into a beautiful and delicate pearl.

In the case of culturing, oysters go through a surgical process where a small shell bead along with a tiny piece of mantle tissue is implanted, this works as a sac where the formation process takes place.
