Colours of freshwater pearls

What natural colours can you get in the larger (10mm+) freshwater pearls.
Not black not yet but what about silver, gold, blue or grey?

The peach pink and lavender are nice but are there any other more exiting colours?

I think I've attached a photo of my konks. If yes can you tell me which are dyed and which are natural.

Susan,

Can you try attaching your pictures again? No attachement was posted.

The natural colors of freshwater pearls available commercially are peach, lavender, cream, and white (white is usually bleached).

The peach and lavender pearls may have different color intensities. Some strong colored lavenders may appear greyish.

Some pearls may have strong overtones such as silver, green, or ros?. A white FW pearl with a strong green overtone may appear as light green in color and the one with ros? overtone may appear pink.
