    Default Pinctada maculata pearls

    Two items of interest to PG members in the latest issue of G&G available here: https://www.gia.edu/doc/Winter-2018-Gems-Gemology.pdf

    First is on Pinctada maculata pearls and can also be viewed online here: https://www.gia.edu/gems-gemology/wi...ctada-maculata

    The second one is about FW pearls and shells so will share on the relevant forum.

    You are welcome MSC. Glad you found them of benefit. P. maculata is one of the "least discussed" mollusks in the literature so nice to have something to turn to when needed down the line.
