Good morning! Yup, have a 15 month old girl climbing on me now ... so this will be short. Just to post a couple scans.
Some are my own, some were given to me by Eric Orde. All are natural, Atlantic Ocean, mussel pearls (M. Edulis) or scallop pearls (Placopecten magellanicus)
I do have extreem close-ups too if any of you want to see. The structure of some of the nicest scallop pearls is platelet-type and neat!
