Whenever the content of this article appears in my mind, the built-in music player will appear. Opened in my mind, I started playing from one of the most famous reggae music in the late 1960s. This song is opening and warming the hearts of all those in Eddie Grant's "Baby Back" era, Desmond Dekker's "If you really want you to get it" and the Tony tribe "Red, Red, Wine" discovers the world of love and has their first serious love with their "unique". Do you remember the first serious relationship with you at these times? The song that is now playing in my mind is "black pearl." Can you hear it? "Black Pearl, precious little girl, let me put you where you belong, because I love you." Then, this article is also about black pearls, but different kinds of black pearls are not limited to them.
Myanmar, a country I have called for more than 25 years, once played a possible role in the global pearl industry and found some of the world's largest and most precious pearls in the waters off the coast of Myanmar. However, since 15 years, Myanmar has returned to the stage of the international pearl industry and has succeeded with its unique silver and gold South Sea cultured pearls.
The history of the Myanmar pearl industry began in 1954 and was founded by K. Takashima of Japan, which established a joint venture with Japan Nanhai Pearl Co., Ltd. & #39; and "Myanmar Pearl Diving and Planting Syndicate ' In the same year as a local partner, Mergui Archipelago began production of pearls in the South China Sea with Pinctada maxima, and in 1957 began the first pearl harvest. The harvest has been a great success. These pearls are among the best South Sea cultured pearls at the highest price. In just a few years, Myanmar has earned a good reputation as a producer of South Sea cultured pearls and has maintained the largest South China Sea cultured pearl in the world. Producing countries, until 1983, allegedly infected with Myanmar and #39; pearl oyster stocks were almost completely extinguished. The Myanmar pearl industry gradually opened up, pearl production is still negligible for more than a decade, the quality of pearls is quite poor. However, from 2001 At the beginning, the production of cultured pearls in the South China Sea in Myanmar was good, and the number of high-quality cultured pearls continued to increase.
Now, in early 2016, there is a government-owned company, four private local companies and four foreign companies [joint ventures] representing the Myanmar pearl industry. They are mainly breeding pearls on the islands of Mergui Archipelago and Pearl Island and are regaining their pre-Burma good reputation and helping the country play an increasingly important role as a global South Sea pearl pearl producer. market. Not necessarily in terms of quantity, but certainly in terms of advanced quality. Myanmar Pearl Company has been increasingly concerned by the international pearl market.
Ok, let's now focus on the central theme and star of this article: Pearl.
At the beginning of this article, I talked about the love associated with pearls and pearls is indeed a wonderful thing to express love. However, the story of the birth of a pearl may not be entirely love, but – imagine that the shelled mollusks produced by pearls can feel pain – at least at the beginning of it is a painful story, because some do not belong to the software The living organization of animals. In other words, pearls are the result of a hostile attack against pain. It seems like the thorn of the rose has fallen into your thumb; hey! But this is the reason why the life of the pearl begins. Some things can sneak into the outer shell of the mollusk and force it into its soft tissue. This ' thing' can be, for example, a parasite larva or tiny sand.
Question: "What is a pearl?" Pearl is a reliable and hard thing, usually silvery white, which can be round or irregular. At its core is an "invader". The mollusk that produces the pearl is first coated with a pearl sac, and then a small crystal of small calcium carbonate is deposited around it, called "pearl mother." In order to isolate foreign objects known as "irritating". . Between the layers constituting the pearl is a layer of organic compound conchiolin which binds them together and simultaneously separates them. The process of producing these nacres is endless, meaning that the older the pearl, the larger the number of layers and the greater the subsequent. This is the answer to the question.
"That is all?" You may ask now. Ok, basically, yes, but of course there are more pearls on the subject. Keep reading, you will know. Let's take a look at the history of the pearl and pearl business and return to the starting point.
Perhaps around 500 BC [and sometimes earlier], people pay more attention to content than packaging, and begin to appreciate the beauty of pearls, not the producer's mother-of-pearl. Shells. Therefore, they put the best pearls in the pearl on a gem. ' and attaches great importance to them on non-material terms [power and beauty] and material terms [wealth].
Pearl is also known as 'Marine Gems' but unlike any other gemstone, pearl is the product of life. In other words, pearls are the only gems & organic sources, which is how gemologists generally classify pearls: colored gems as organic sources. And pearls are the only gems that don't need to be cut or polished – just clean – to show their beauty.
At that time, pearls existed only in natural form, also known as wild pearls. They were very rare before, and they are a symbol of power, wealth and beauty, and many people think they can afford and are willing to pay them a royal fee for royalties and non-franchise fees. In other words, the demand for pearls – either alone or as a so-called collector' project or as part of a jewel – is very high and the supply is very low, making special categories of pearls a high-priced luxury. Trading with these pearls is a very profitable business. Driven by the three strongest motives of humanity – wealthy, strong and beautiful – sellers and buyers are starting to look for pearls.
Let us take a closer look at the pearl and its natural creator. Basically, almost all types of shelled mollusks [even some kinds of snails!] don't know where they fill fresh water [such as rivers and lakes] or seawater [such as oceans and oceans] and produce pearls. It is a process called #39. Calcareous stones ' '. However, most of these pearls have no value unless they are from the perspective of a collector or scientist. For example, the exception to this rule is "blue pearl." Abalone shell and pink pearl ' conch conch
The difference between valuable and valueless pearls lies in their size, weight, shape, luster, color [both pearlescent and iridescent] and surface conditions. These are the criteria for determining whether a pearl has gem quality and the highest price. From the supply of pearl divers to pearl sellers, and of course buyers of demand, only the long-chain of the pearl business involving the pearl business has such pearls.
The pearls that become the top pearls of gem-quality pearls are made only from a few types of mussels and/or pearl oysters. Freshwater pearls are made up of members of the freshwater mussel family and Unionidae' while saltwater pearls are created by members of the pearl oyster family, while Pteriidae'.
Until the third set of cultured pearls was produced by Mitsubishi/Japan in 1928 and introduced into the pearl market, there were only natural pearls on the market. This keeps the number of commercially viable pearls low and very expensive. This is especially true for ideal situations. Pearls are perfect round and the price is the highest.
Due to the formation of forms such as "high value." Or "high price" & #39; is relative, and does not have much meaning I think I need to attach a number to them. The following example will give you an idea of the value of pearls before "culture." Pearl era. The matching double-strand of 55 plus 73 [128 total] round natural pearls from jeweler Pierre Cartier was worth $1 million in 1917. Taking into account the calculation, the current average inflation rate of the current monetary value of the pearl chain is 3.09%, which is $20.39 million! I am sure that after taking a deep breath, you now have a very clear understanding of the value of pearls I am talking about, especially the natural pearls before the emergence of cultured pearls. Moreover, even in the age of cultured pearls, natural pearls will always be the most precious and precious. why? This is because these pearls are pure natural and absolutely unique, especially when we add factors to ancient times.
With the commercialization of British biologist William Saville-Kent and the patented method of Japanese Tokichi Nishikawa to produce cultured pearls, the pearl industry has undergone revolutionary changes and has undergone the most significant changes. The cultured pearl industry based on the new technology developed in Japan has undergone tremendous changes. Nothing will be like this now.
Pearl farming enables the production of tailor-made “tailor-made” products. The quality of the pearl may be. Because it is kept secret and not allowed to be used by foreigners, it also provides Japan with a global monopoly of cultured pearls, which is also the dominant position in the world…Click here!The China Secret.
