The Nature of Pearls


Formed in the dark of mollusk shells, pearls glow with an inner radiance.  This spectacular exhibit featured the most comprehensive presentation ever mounted on pearls:  weaving science, art, literature, history and fabulous jewelry into the story of pearl-forming mollusks, part of the most diverse animal phyla on Earth.

This exhibition was organized by American Museum of Natural History, New York, in collaboration with The Field Museum, Chicago.
