    Agreed! One way to look at it in a more simple form is that a pearl is a lot like the shell, except backward. The periostracum is the outside of a mollusk shell and the nacreous layer is the innermost side. Pearls are in some ways, mollusk shells inside out.

          I agree wholeheartedly: Dave's explanation and diagram are superb! And Jeremy's description of how the shell and the pearl are the inverse of each other...simply magic!
