This technology provides an environmentally-friendly and commercially viable way to produce a new cultured pearl.

About

Prior to the development of this technology, there was no method for culturing pearls in conch and other gastropods. This novel method overcomes the challenge of extracting the pearl without killing the conch, which was previously a daunting task because of the odd shape of the animal. Additionally, this unique process allows for a large number of pearls (upwards of 500) to be produced. This technology ultimately provides the gem industry with an environmentally-friendly and commercially viable way to produce a new cultured pearl.
