Fun Facts: This is a fireball pearl, which is a specific type of baroque pearl. "Baroque" is a term given to irregularly shaped pearls. These organically-shaped curiosities are often from freshwater mollusks. Pearls are formed when an irritant enters certain species of mollusks (e.g. clams, mussels, and oysters). To protect itself from the irritant, the mollusk produces layers of a fluid called nacre to encapsulate the irritant. When hardened, this nacre is what creates the pearl and the ensuing pearlesence! In fact, many iridescent shells, like abalone, also have layers of nacre!
