Basra Pearl Gemstone

A pearl Gem is composed of calcium carbonate which is secreted by an oyster after it encounters an irritant. Natural Pearls Gemstones, though rarely found, are considered the most flawless of pearls. In this case, oysters (which are shelled invertebrates) secrete bigger pearls naturally, with microscopic irritants. Natural pearls Gemstones are especially found in the Indian Ocean, and are also known as Basra pearl. They have a beautiful rainbow-like shimmer which made them one of the most prized gemstones since ancient times. Arabian, Chinese and Indian texts report instances of 'pearl divers' who would go Pearl Stone hunting and finding a Basra Pearl Gemstones was very rare and very difficult. Today, sea pearl jewellery – necklaces, earrings, pendants, bracelets, etc. is still extremely popular, though less priced than before because of Pearl Gems farming.

The Basra Pearl Gem – basra moti in the Hindustani language, has been revered in India for its beauty, medicinal value and healing effects for thousands of years. Because of its resemblance, it's associated with the Moon, the deity who rules over the water element, and carries embodiment of Shiva Shakti energy which is one’s soul or identity. The Basra Pearl Gemstone is noted for its light scattering effects and its purity. It's tied to the Zodiac sign Cancer, and to the Swathisthana chakra. Wearing a pearl makes one honour his unique identity and calms down ones emotions and mind. It makes one aware about his own sexuality and unique gifts.

Take Care of Your Pearl:

After you buy a pearl stone, you must remember that the pearl is a soft, easily eroded gemstone that is highly sensitive to chemicals – especially 'cleaning' agents like ammonia and vinegar. A pearl is basically calcium carbonate – so acidic solutions should be never be used to clean it. The best way to keep it from wearing is an occasional wipe with a slightly wet, soft piece of cloth.

How to wear your basra pearls:

Wear in a silver ring on your Little finger. Consult a chakra practitioner who can guide you about the proper Basra Pearl stone to buy and its wearing method.
