There are hundreds of varieties of natural wild found pearls from both the fresh and salt water. Most are found by fishermen looking for food. Here is a small sampling of some I either have or have had in stock. I am always joyous to find new species, and new colors of natural wild found pearls.
Natural wild found oyster pearls from Baja Mexico
Natural wild found pearls from the American fresh water rivers of Tennessee.
Natural wild found Scallop pearl from Mexico. These pearls range in color from white to purple, orangey/brown to deep wine red. The shell is called the Pacific Lion's Paw or the "Mano De Lion" and is found mostly in the warm waters off Baja. The pearls are not generally too big in size (rarely reaching above 8mm), but they do often display a crystal mosaic surface structure! They are VERY rare, and generally only admired by true collectors.
