There are so many "Edison" floating round now, its heard to keep track of the threads, but honestly it is interesting seeing I guess I would call it color evolution. The PP Burgundy Edisons for example. At first I thought they were just going to be deep Mauve or Extreme Lavender with some brown thrown it, but it seems the color stands on its own.

somehow I lost track of this thread. I was asking back then, but bought a few pearls. I am sad because they are now selling vac-pac Oysters seeded with CFWP.
What does this mean? "vac-pac oysters seeded with CFWP"? Guessing they're vacuum-packed oysters seeded with Chinese freshwater pearls, but what does the vacuum packed part mean? I confess my imagination is running wild and that this can't be a good thing for the oysters...
ETA: Apologies for the thread-jack.
I'd rather not relive/revist that whole chapter again, but some sellers online are offering wholesale/bulk baby oyster shells sealed in vacuum packed bags seeded with horrid freshwater pearls and who knows what type of toxic preservatives.
