An interesting article was recently published in CNN, with the title of Eco-friendly and ultra-luxury: How Bahrain hopes to revive its natural pearl industry.

The article explains that the island nation of Bahrain (part of the Saudi Emirates) intends on reviving their traditional natural pearl fisheries and focus on the Eco-Friendly (sustainable) and Ultra-High Luxury market segment.
