    hehe... well, it's very interesting. I'm not sure about "swan"... The blue is great. I'm having a difficult time taking a decent photo. It's very much dark-bright blue and creamy-white. The pearl beside it is a very round, very smooth, light blue-lavender mussel pearl as well. That one is quite "large" at nearly 5.5mm but the big blue is just massive. One can see an attachment spot at the very bottom, almost like it mushroomed out.

    It would make an interesting piece. I have a hard time "disrupting" my naturals though. I like looking at them... comparing them...

    My question about this one though is why is it so blue? It's the same colouring (yes, I spell Canadian) as the blister pearl in one of my shells, but the bottom is all white...

    Welcome, warmweather!

    You might find some comparable pearls at KariPearls.com and ThePearlCollector.com, credible websites, and also natural pearl buyers. We would love to see some photos, against a white paper tools work well to show your pearl.
