Set of  Trochys Pearls
Single (approx 15mm oval)

After finding a 40mm horn shaped, cream with green streaks, pearl inside a conch in south-east asia, I showed a few of the locals on the island.
They then proceeded to show me these ones they had spirited away.
They originate from 5 inch base diameter strawberry trochus shells.
They have a transparent 'window' through which you can see beautiful nacre, and a milky, smooth outer edge.
The local divers said that only about one trochus found every two or three months had a pearl.
Does anyone know anything more about these beautiful pearls?
