    Abstract

    Pearls, the gems from the sea, have been admired and adored as symbols of beauty, power and love. In the Shaslras pea rls are recommended as a charm.Ancient Ayurvedic and Unani physicians have used powdered pearls in their medicines. Natural pearls are fanned when an irritant like a grain of sand is swept into an oyster and is lodged within its flesh where it gets coated by a micro-thin layer of nacre, a silvery s\lbstance that is about 90 percent calcium carbonate.
