natural pearls pacific : FANTASTIC !

Melo Melo 8.5 ct :cool:

whoa indeed. I just discovered this thread and my eyes are overflowing - so much viewing pleasure! Thank you for sharing!
Hello Croissy!
Thank you for sharing these! Great photos and interesting shapes!
Such amazing shapes and colors on those treasures. They must be quite rare.
Those are some very unique pearls! Are the backsides as pretty or are they more like mabes?
Where is this pearl from? Which oyster?

It's not an oyster but the "Melo-melo" conch...a large marine snail. That is why its colors and looks are so different and unique.
