The pearl is an organic gemstone and grows inside of live oysters.
One of the oldest gemstones, astrologers link the pearl to the moon. This is the angel stone, and some say that the pearl was born when a drop of rain fell from heaven and became a part of the oyster and others, that the pearl signifies the passage of angels through heaven’s clouds. Pearls are also called “teardrops of the moon.”
Over time, the pearl has become the symbol of purity and innocence so it is often sewn into bridal gowns, or worn as jewelry by the bride.
Pearl is a birthstone of many months: February, April, June, July and November and for the Zodiac signs of Gemini and Cancer.
