Definitions for "Abalone Pearl"
Sometimes called “the opal of the South-Sea,” these pearls are known for their rich blue, green and red hues. They take their name from the Abalone, a sea snail native to New Zealand. Only about one in several hundred of these creatures produces a pearl, and in many cases it does not have a pleasing shape, so a perfect Abalone pearl is extremely rare and valuable.
Pearl produced by the abalone mollusc. Abalone pearls are usually gray with strong orient.
A saltwater pearl, typically small in size, occurring in a wide range of colors.
