Mother Of Pearl

Description

Mother-of-pearl is the nacreous inner shell coating of pearl-producing mollusks. These creatures have three layers to their shell; the outermost periostracum, followed by a layer of calcite and then the innermost layer of nacre (mother-of-pearl). This smooth part of the shell is produced by the mantle of the mollusk as it grows.
