The mother of pearl (also known as nacre) used in this organic jewelry collection is an organic-inorganic composite material produced by some mollusks as an inner shell layer. It's strong, resilient and beautifully iridescent. Nacre is only found in some bivalves, gastropods and cephalopods, unlike the porcellaneous and non-nacreous inner-shell layer in most mollusks. The abalone we use comes from edible sea snails of all sizes, marine gastropod mollusks in the family Haliotidae, and the genus Haliotis. The bone found in this organic jewelry collection comes from Indonesian water buffalo and is comprised of the mineral calcium carbonate.
