    This GIA article references an Australian Akoya farm; it does show photos of the range of harvest colors, linking here in case anyone missed the other thread.

    As I understand it, most of the technicians that do the nucleating are Japanese, who are secretative about their skill, knowledge and expertise. Farms track and evaluate the quality of the pearls each technician produces. To his credit, Josh Humbert of Kamoka Pearls was trained by Japanese technicians and is able to do his own grafting.

    I found it fascinating that the technicians seemed to see different color results based on their techniques. Thanks for posting the link over here Pattye.
