This pearl is part of a larger batch presumably from the South Caribbean region, on the Northern coast of Venezuela. The pearls have been GIA certified and carbon tested. The results for the carbon testing reveal that there is a 95% chance that the pearls are from between 1455 AD to 1615 AD and there is a 68% chance that they are from 1472 AD to 1537 AD, making them the oldest pearls in that region ever found. Each order comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Prehistoric Foundation LLC and a full color pearl magazine with the story of the pearls history. These pearls are 500 years old, therefore they may or may not have blemishes and or irregular shapes. You are not just buying a natural gem, but also one of historical value.
