This is why pearls are considered to be gems of nurturing and nourishment, as their origin is a result of self-nurturing. Pearls have long been attributed with having great powers, and have been incorporated into the mythology of virtually every culture that has encountered them. And no wonder! Given natural pearls rarity, as well as their mysterious beauty, who could argue that pearls might not indeed be a gift from the gods?
