7 1/2" Gold Mother of Pearl (8mm) Stretch Bracelet

Also known as gold lip shell, this is the iridescent inner layer of nacre found only in a certain species of freshwater pearl mussels (which are actually clams, not mussels) in the family Unionideae, or Unio for short. The outer edges of the shell have the darkest, most vivid color, which is why it earned the name “gold-lip.” Endemic to freshwater rivers, lakes, ponds, and streams in a number of eastern states, this particular mussel produces an inner protective nacre that is distinctively gold in color, rather than typical mother-of-pearl, which has a bluish-white cast. Other mussels may have a yellowish, purplish, or blue-green nacre.

Mother-of-pearl shell is commonly believed to attract prosperity and is often used in mystical work and lore to heighten intuition, psychic sensitivity and imagination. It is believed that mother-of-pearl shell offers soothing, motherly protection from negative energy and love.
