Pearls are unique gems in the sense that they are naturally formed outside of the Earth, occurring when something enters a clam, oyster, or mussel and becomes coated in nacre, a defensive liquid. If enough nacre is produced, a pearl forms. These natural specimens are considered extremely rare, leading to many in the gemstone trade opting for pearls created through human interference or different materials.
Pearls are thought to work well with the root, heart, third eye, and crown chakras.
You can place pearls in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
