MOTHER-OF-PEARL This receptive stone is lustrous and opalescent. It is the product of living creatures, the exterior skeleton of sea mollusks. Collect it in stream beds and ocean shores since commercial mother of pearl is obtained by killing the animal. It is related to the fifth element, the Akasha. In many parts of the world, seashells were once the medium of exchange.
