Abstract

Japanese scientist, Tokichi Nishikawa, propoun- ded the theory that a pearl is formed. when the living peari-secreting cells of the mantle, migrate into the body of the pearl oyster under the stimulus of a foreign body and the division of these cells produces a 'pearl sac' which covers the foreign body with nacre to form the pearl.
