Abstract

This reports the results of study on which region of the mantle gives good quality pearls and also higher production rate. The mantle tissue from 4 areas namely anterior (a),posterior (b), middle (c), and central (d)regions were used. This study showed that the middle region of mantle when used as graft tissue resulted in not only high percentage of pearl formation (50.28%) but also, the marketable pearls (A, B and C - groups) accounted for 77.53% of the total pearls produced.
