Pearl of Phuket
We have known pearls for thousands of years ago and used them as a valuable ornaments. In the past, the story of pearls was very mysterious and some believed that pearls came from a mermaid's teardrops. Some even believed that they came from God in heaven.
In recent times, mankind has observed that colours of pearls are like colours of shells. They then assumed that pearls were produced by oysters that released a liquid to surround a foreign object inside them. This process continues until the skin of that foreign object becomes smooth and clear just like a seashell.
Mankind has tried to study the birth of pearls from oysters and use this natural process to culture and farm the pearl oyster which has created today's pearl industry.
