What are freshwater and salt water pearls?

Freshwater pearls are from freshwater while saltwater pearls are from saltwater. The process of natural freshwater pearls occurring is pretty much the same as that of saltwater pearls, except ones occur in mussels and the other in oysters. half drilled or undrilled loose pearls

The catalyst inserted to the oyster is just a very tiny piece of another oyster's mantle tissue instead of shell beads. This foreign material would be entered into a mussel, and to reduce and resist the irritation, the mollusk coats the intruder with the same secretion it uses for shell-building, nacre.

Freshwater pearls are totally different from any of other gemstones. They are similar to saltwater pearls in terms of both of them are made of nature, but difference occurs as freshwater pearls are almost seedless, quite similar to the wild natural pearl. A variety of factors determine shapes and quality of pearls such as the raising of infant oyster, the health of oyster itself, ingredients in the water, water temperature, the inserting skill of workers, fertilization, diseases half drilled or undrilled loose pearlsprevention, etc.

How freshwater pearls are cultured?

To culture freshwater pearls, workers would slightly open mussels shells, cut small slits into the mantle tissue inside both shells, and insert small pieces of live mantle tissue from another mussel into those slits. In freshwater mussels that insertion alone is sufficient to start nacre production.

Pearls are composed entirely of nacre, just like their natural freshwater and natural saltwater counterparts.
