Pearl formation- Natural pearls formation occurs due to accidental conditions when a parasite enters a bivalve mollusk and makes his home inside the shell. The mollusk, irritated by the intruder, forms a pearl sac of external mantle tissue cells and secretes the calcium carbonate and conchiolin to cover the irritant. This process is repeated many times, thus producing a pearl.
