      And your pink pearl is definitively not an Abalone pearl by any means.

              I was just looking at an auction site and they had 3 very pink Australian SouthSea pearls - large and round... that were so obviously Edison/Ming. sigh

                And not abalone... In defense of The Pearl Source, I have to say that those articles are not written by them.

                  Yes, you are right. Many companies hire writers. They should hire someone from this forum, don't you think so?

                    Hello, guys! I read in one Russian book about pearls that farmers can change the color of the pearls during they grow if they add some chemical elements to water or biochemical things with food what they feed the molluscs also could change the color of the cultured pearls- but nothing about this technique in the international books? Is it true or false that during the farming you could possibly change the color of pearls? I would be very grateful for the answer.
                    (Addendum by CortezPearls: this was also posted by LinaPlokhova)
                    Also, that it’s possible to change the color of the pearls during they grow, that farmers can add to the water some chemicals which can change the color of the pearls- is it true or some false information?

                      Hello LinaPlokhova, and welcome to our Pearl forum!
                      That is one very interesting question(s) and one that is VERY HARD to explain because the answer is YES & NO. Mindboggling it is.
                      There is this Japanese author by the name of Tamura, that back in the 1940's surmised that pearl color had to do with the presence of minerals, in the form of metallic ions. He said that Iron would make the pearls pink, copper for green and manganese for black (I haven't read the translation in over 30 years, might be wrong) but that was the belief back then...now we know that -for the most part- color in pearls has to do with melanin (for black pearls), carotenoids (for conch & snail pearls) and light interference and crystal arrangements in the pearls.

                      Could we change a pearl's color with simple chemical elements? Possibly. If we add toxic chemicals the oysters will become sick and their nacre will be of lesser quality and they will be dull and colorless. If we add nitrogen, sulfur, to the water we may start an eutrophication process and an algae bloom, and if the algae are of the type the oysters or mussels like to eat (and non-toxic!) they will fatten, become healthier, with more energy and secrete better, more beautiful and colorful nacre/pearls.

                      That is my opinion, but we have many others that will have different opinions and sources. It would be great to have a debate on the subject so we can deepen our understanding of the subject.
