Pearl stones are a soothing and beautiful and exceptional gemstone, which actually is not a mineral found on Earth’s crust but nurtured in the depth of Oceans. Though it is termed as a gemstone/stone, it is unlike typical gemstones and crystals and is bred by Sea Oysters and other Shelled Molluscs. The Pearl gems are known as the "Queen Gem" and are said to symbolize purity, innocence, and modesty. The Pearl gemstone is blessed with inherent healing properties.
Natural Pearl gemstones are formed as a defense mechanism of the Oysters, Clams, and Mussels. When a foreign body or an irritant enters the Oyster Shell/Clam/Mussel, the soft tissues or rather the mantle of the living Shelled Mollusc, it automatically secretes a smooth crystalline substance called 'nacre' to form a coating on the irritant because it is not able to dispel it. This natural process goes on for years to form the natural Pearl stones. It is a misconception that a Grain of Sand/dirt is the cause of irritation which causes the nacre to be secreted in Mollusc Shell. Rather it is considered to be a micro-organism or parasite which mostly causes this phenomenon to set in the mantle of the Shelled Mollusc.
Naturally formed Pearl gemstone is precious, very rare, and valuable. It is a combination of Calcium Carbonate and a complex protein called Conchiolin. It is interesting to note that the nacre secreted by Mollusc shells is called Mother-of-Pearl which is commonly known as Mother Pearl stones. The natural Pearl gemstone breeds in the shorelines of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, United Arab Emirates, and also in the Indian Ocean.
The natural Pearl stones mostly have a flawless round formation but come in other shapes too. Most of the Pearl gemstones available in recent years are Cultured Pearl stones. Cultured Pearl stones are made with a process discovered in Japan by Kokichi Mikimoto and Pearl gems are reared in Pearl farms. Imitation Pearl stones are also available widely sometimes made from glass beads and other ingredients. However, nothing can beat the luster or quality of the prized natural Pearl gemstone.

WEARING PEARL GEMSTONE OR BASRA PEARL WITH RUDRAKSHA
Wearing a combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha is the best way to make the most of it. Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® (RRST®) devised by Neeta Singhal employs the use of both Basra Pearl and Rudraksha beads. It is a holistic healing therapy that uses the curative and healing properties of Rudraksha and Gemstones to balance your Chakras. In RRST, we deal only with natural and un-treated gemstones. The reason Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy is widely acclaimed by many is that it works on Chakras, the very basis of life, and is a holistic therapy that heals from deep within, with absolutely no side effects. In RRST, setting a gemstone in a ring or in a pendant is done by placing the Bhasm made of the planetary herb inside one tube and the metal that improves the planetary effects in another tube. In the case of Pearl stones/ Basra Mukta stone, Palaash Bhasm and metal Silver are used to attract the cosmic power of Moon. The gemstone is then energized with its precise seed mantra on a specific day to empower it to eliminate all the malefic effects of the planet and reinforce its beneficial effects. Thus, the gemstone becomes a powerful talisman suitable to be worn by any person irrespective of his birth chart.
During the consultation, the blocked Chakras that are causing mental, emotional, physical issues are identified, and limiting beliefs are addressed. Chakras become imbalanced when your thoughts and attitudes tend towards fears and negativity when facing challenging situations in life. Blocked Chakras manifest emotional disorders and physical ailments. You can live a successful, loving, and happy life only after your blocked Chakras are activated and balanced. As per the Chakra status and concerns of the client, a suitable combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha bead is recommended. As per the cosmic color they emit, the gemstones work on specific Chakras. The Basra Moti stone influences on Swadhisthana Chakra and the RRST Consultant identifies the correct finger position for drawing maximum energy from the stone. Rudraksha and Gems are powerful agents of energy and work on releasing the negative energy stored in the form of stress in the blocked Chakras, thereby activating them and turning them to their natural state.
Swadhisthana Chakra means “residence of the self". It is the seat of the Identity, it can bring body, soul, and spirit in perfect harmony. Water is the element of this Chakra; hence it refers to the clarity of mind but may get distorted by emotions.
When the Swadhisthana Chakra is blocked/ imbalanced, fears and insecurities grip you. You may feel abused, hurt, and confused and won't believe that you can be loved for being the way you are. You fear to take risks in life and often end up in problems.
A balanced Swadhisthana Chakra makes you fearless by nature and also makes sure that you are safe and protected. You are creative and have a trusting nature. If this Chakra is balanced, you have a good sense of your sexuality and you identify it as one of your most powerful creative energies.
Hence proper functioning of all the Chakras ensures appropriate energy flow to all body parts including our vital organs. Thus, Chakra cleansing and balancing are essential to enjoy good health and happiness which translates to overall abundance and wellbeing in every sphere of life. The purpose of Swadhisthana Chakra is to make you get established in your being, feel cherished, precious, and special and live a life free of fears and guilt.
