About the stone
Mother of pearl, or nacre, is an organic-inorganic composite material produced by some molluscs as an inner shell layer. It is strong, resilient, and iridescent.
Mother of pearl has been used for thousands of years; it was used by the ancient Egyptians and Sumerians. Inlay work has also been used in East Asian and Islamic religious art. In the West, mother of pearl became very popular during the Victorian Era. In the 1880s, the leaders of London street traders, known as Costermongers, began to decorate their hand-me-down suits with hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of mother of pearl buttons. These people were known as "Pearly Kings" and "Pearly Queens". Part of the philosophy of the Pearly Kings and Queens was to give to others. This community continues charity work to this day, proudly wearing their pearly suits.
Mother of pearl is believed to encourage prosperity. It is thought that mother-of-pearl offers soothing, motherly protection from negative energy. Mother of pearl is also thought to promote intuition and imagination.
