I have a question about 20 odd scallop pearls I own. They have all been given to me by various scallop fishermen that come in the studio and just don't know what to do with them. I've researched a bit and seem to find the Pacific Lion's Claw pearls a lot, but none that look like ours here in Nova Scotia, Canada.
The ones I have and have seen all have the similar platelet type surface with a little "fire". They are usually quite round and range from 3mm to 6-7mm. However, they are always very creamy white, almost transparent (like fish scales). I'll post a picture when I can get a decent one.
Does anyone have more history/ information about these?
