The Hidden Meaning of Black Pearls
Black pearls have a mysterious aura surrounding them. Some say black pearls are a symbol of hope for wounded hearts, others say they carry healing powers, while others believe black pearls protect the wearer from negative energy.
Black pearls are found in the Tahitian and French Polynesian Islands. They are exotic, rare, and of exceptional value. In the olden days, black pearls were only worn by royals and nobles, earning them the nicknames of “queen of pearls” and “pearl of queens.” Even though black pearls are now cultivated, they are still rare.
Black Pearl Myths and Legends
There are many myths and legends surrounding pearls. Here are some of the most common black pearl myths and legends:
How Black Pearls Really Get Their Color
Pearls get their color from the nacre of the oysters they grow in. Black pearls are formed in the black-lipped bivalve mollusk Pinctada Margaritifera. This mollusk has a thick, black inner shell. Pearls that are formed near to the inner shell are darker, while those formed further away are a lighter gray or silver.
Black pearls are rarely plain black. These pearls commonly have playful shimmers of green, gold, blue, lavender, and pink on the surface.
