Nice find! Looks like Pinctada margaritifera pearl...not Pteria.
 
The GIA certificate says "natural". They would have x-rayed for a nucleus.
I see now, gosh pearls are much more complex than I thought. See I heard that natural pearls are not ever round. Does anyone know why I can’t find any info pertaining to NATURAL pearls, like wild pearls. I really want to see photos of what they look like but it seems the government has taken all info from google at least photos of natural pearls, please someone, now is the time to prove me wrong LOL

I have many natural pearl harvest videos on my channel...these are OLD videos so don't expect 4K!
But you can see many, many shapes of natural pearls as they are extracted.
Natural pearls CAN BE round, but most are not.

Have you looked at Kari Pearls website? She sells natural pearls.

Kojima pearls has a page showing some natural pearls:

There really are not a lot of natural pearls around; the pearl market is now a cultured pearl market, and has been since the early 1900s.

As to images online, it really doesn't help that people who don't know pearls often use the term "natural" to mean "not fake." This gives rise to many images of cultured pearls incorrectly described as "natural". And eBay and other sellers listing cultured pearls as "natural".

Natural pearls CAN BE round, but most are not.
Douglas, outstanding! I could go on at length, but I'll save that for a single observation now.

The common features being these are interpallial pearls of periostracial onset.

The exception being Pearl#1. It's intervestibular of myostracial onset.

One is a HUGE difference in every way from the others. Hinge pearls may be either. Adjacent heart involvement is myostracial while at the end of the mantle is pallial. Heart (periocardium) pearls are often granular, while pallial pearls are highly nacreous, thus supporting pallial/periostracial onset. The pearls are somewhat loose in support, easily reflected revealing both aspects of the mantle.

Pallial mantles build shell area and volume. Vestibular mantles are specialized to build the surface for the adductor muscle to attach.
Pearl#1 is tightly set within a sac adjacent to the adductor muscle. These pearls often candle/xray with little or no visible nuclei, mainly from strains but for other factors too. Usually anatomical and physical, not necessarily environmental. Pallial lesions are almost always environmental.

This video also demonstrates the value of perimortem pathology and analysis. Sadly in the real world much of the scientific value of a pearl is lost once a pearl is removed from it's situation.

All of these present as natural, irrefutably. Large sizes, uniform structures and lustrous nacre.

Thank you Douglas.

Aku juga pernah punya mutiara melo yang sangat cantik. Tapi seseorang telah membelinya. Namun aku tidak bisa melupakannya, selalu mengingat dan bersedih kenapa dulu saya menjualnya.

This is obviously selling...
I've alerted the user several times. At least he is no longer posting his phone number but I think it has to stop now. A pitty since he does post some beautiful and interesting pearls :(
Maybe the language barrier? No excuse.

Saya telah memberi tahu pengguna beberapa kali. Setidaknya dia tidak lagi memposting nomor teleponnya tetapi saya pikir itu harus dihentikan sekarang. Sayang sekali karena dia memposting beberapa mutiara yang indah dan menarik:(
Mungkin kendala bahasa? Tidak ada alasan.
Anda benar. Harap di maklumi, saya berasal dari negara indonesia. Kurang pandai berbahasa inggris. Trimakasih atas pengertiannya.
