Today, there is a tremendous variety of pearls available in the market, but do you know, they are the least understood of all gemstones. We all are aware that pearls are the world’s only organic gemstone but are we really aware of how are they formed? Yes, you read it right! I meant formed not found! Most of us, at least I can be pretty sure of me, have the notion that they are found inside the sea shells and in seas, oceans, etc. But have we even give it a thought that how are they formed inside those sea shells? Are you aware of the pearl education, i.e. pearl culturing and oyster life cycle?
I came across a website that offers a program on pearls that is specially prepared with a goal to educate children in the amazing process that is pearl culturing and oyster life cycle.
Yes, I am talking about ‘Pearls in School’ program by PearlOnly™. They offer an amazing opportunity to experience pearls in an exciting new way. Their experts have prepared a series of lesson plans carefully structured for children of different age in different parts of the world. The program is basically designed for teachers to have a chance to explain and learn with their students about the oyster and the fascinating process that is pearl creation.
They have different learning plans for students for different class grades (3-5, 6-8, 9-12). These lesson plans can also be downloaded from their website.

With the tremendous variety of pearls on the market today, pearls are considered the least understood of all gemstones.

Pearls are the world’s only organic gemstone, and therefore, tend to be quite delicate.
