This is a very cool pearl! Even if it was poorly treated, I think the result is a happy accident. Neat collection item!
Ugh, it's so hard to describe. It's like a black hole in the nacre, but not like a clean hole from drilling ... more jagged. It's missing nacre with concentrated conchioline and other organic matter. The rim of the "hole" often has a whitish coloration too. It's like a little bomb went off on the surface, lol.Thanks. I've seen my fair share of poor Tahitians, but I can't say I've ever seen one that looks as if it's been burned. I do know what a burned one looks like...a little "experiment" with a keshi!
