I've taken this book off of my pearl shelf and am starting to read it again. You can download a few pages about melo pearls by Kenneth Scarratt, for free here:

(Click on "Download Full Text PDF" and you'll get the18 pages. I think you need to be a member to get the full text PDF.)
Most of us have heard about melo pearls and in these free pages you can learn about various species of melo pearls: Melo aethio pica, Melo amphora, Melo broderipii, Melo georginae, and Melo melo.

Happy Learning!
