      Two beautiful and fascinating pearls; thank you for sharing, Echo and Starry Pearl! I checked some of my larger pearls, but didn't find anything unusual.

        I've seen these cracks before and always assumed it happened quite some time earlier as they seemed well under the surface. I did have one drop that I didn't sell as the crack seemed closer to the surface and I was concerned that if dropped it would crack further.

              I have seen this before. I believe it's a fracture of the nacre on the inside. It won't snap off like a tokki pearl though, because the fracture seems to be covered by whole nacre.

                Haha! Watched your most recent videos a few days ago. I will be very keen to see this one, hopefully by the New Year ? Meanwhile let me decide which pearl I want to cut open...

                  I actually have 2 pearls I really want to work on: both are freshwater, one shaped like a shuriken (ninja star) and the other one a large baroque.

                  Thanks for sharing your experience, Katbran!

                  This is what puzzles me most: how can a pearl crack itself inside the shell... it's not like a hatchling is pecking from inside or something...

                    Thanks for sharing, Wendy! Your bonus necklace looks stunning and I can barely see any flaw on it. It has interesting colors!

                      Thanks for your opinion, Jeremy. Do you think it's only a few layers' fracture, or all the layers from the visible fractured layer all the way to the center? Any thoughts on how this fracture could happen?

                        I'm first finishing a heavy workload I have for this week, probably will shoot the video this weekend. I promise it won't take until 2026
