Are these pipi pearls?
I'm still missing those for my collection
Is it possible to find natural pearls of this quality in the world?

What is the orgin of the term PIPI
...The so called "Pipi pearla" have to be mentioned here. They come from P. maculata (Gould, 1850), which occurs throughout the Pacific Ocean. The tiny golden pearls, rarely larger than 5mm, called "poe pipi" in Maori language, are mainly found in the Cook Islands.
