FABULOUS multi strand mother of pearl shell necklace with a beautiful creamy white/iridescent mother of pearl flower. The overall color of this necklace is a soft black but the individual mother of pearl beads are actually many colors of cream, khaki and grey. This necklace is my new obsession! VERY SPECIAL💕
FYI. Mother of pearl is the iridescent substance that forms the lining of the shells of some freshwater and some salt water mollusks. Like the pearl it is a secretion made by the animals mantle and made up of alternate layers of calcium carbonate and conchiolin. It is light reacting with this layering which gives mother of pearl that sheen.
