Hi Mr Brossard,
I noticed how well detailed your posts are, the kind definitely not written by just simple aficionados. I am just wondering what field of work do you do other than (my best guess from your pictures) a marine biologist?
I myself am in the aquaculture business and very fond of the sea. In fact, my company's motto is OMNE VIVUM EX OSIANIS.
Beautiful and fascinating photos in your album. Thank you for sharing.
Hello! How are you?
No, I'am not working in a pearl farm, my parents have been in the import/export of sea shells and its bi-product since the 70's thus we had acquired those pearl through local divers/dealers that brought/sold it to us.
I'am sure it came from the wild, NOT from a pearl farm, through local indigenous tribe of Badjaos who sail/dive for a living, then sell there daily catch. I believe it was found in the Sulu-Sulawesi Seas,Philippines.
Are you fond of pearls?
Or shell collector? You seem to have knowledge of sea shells.
