Pearls are known as a symbol of feminine perfection! They are formed inside shellfish like mollusks and oysters as a natural defense against sand, grit or other irritants. The shellfish excretes nacre, a crystallized calcium carbonate containing millions of Aragonite platelets, over the irritant to shield itself from it. As the layers of nacre build up the Pearl begins to take shape. Because they are created in layers, Pearls have an iridescent affect that creates their beautiful sheen, as well as a nurturing and protective energy. Pearls remind us when we are faced with obstacles or setbacks that we shouldn’t dwell on the negative aspects only. Facing and overcoming obstacles is when real growth occurs, just as the Pearl grows layer by layer as it overcomes each of its own. Pearls are connected and ruled by the Moon, a Water Element. They bring a calming, soothing energy that encourages us to go with the flow. In addition, they work on an emotional level to balance our moods and heal our negative thought patterns. Connected to the Third Eye Chakra, Pearls enhance intuition and enlighten the mind as we seek higher wisdom and truth.
