In case of duplicate questions, the author will decide the winner. Today's winner is: Janet Taylor, 10, Willard, Ohio. Pearls are made by certain kinds of oysters, clams, and QUINCY mussels. All these animals are called mollusks, from a Latin word meaning "soft", because they have soft bodies inside their hard shells. The pearl is actually composed of the material with which a mollusk coats an irritating particle that has got inside the shell and which it cannot get rid of. This irritant may be a piece of broken shell, a parasite that has bored through the shell, or even a tiny grain of sand. The oyster keeps layering material onto the piece to keep it from being an irritation. This material is called nacre, or mother-of- pearl. As the layers of mother-of-pearl are built up, a pearl is made. Natural pearls are found rarely, and large natural pearls even more rarely. So most of the pearls sold today are cultured pearls. They are real pearls, but human beings cause the oysters to produce them. This was discovered hundreds of years ago by the Chinese, who found that objects would be covered with mother-of-pearl if they were placed inside the shells of oysters and clams. In the late 1800's some Japanese researchers learned how to treat oysters to produce cultured pearls at a low cost., and today this is a large industry in Japan. To produce a cultured pearl, a smooth, round bead of mother-of-pearl is set into the living tissue of a pearl oyster. Then the oyster is returned to the water for 3 to 5 years. Cultured pearls are less expensive than natural ones, but. only an expert can tell the difference between them. * # * FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1.
