Virgilio Luib Pearl

The pearl on the center is a Natural Saltwater 12mm golden white pearl. It was found in the waters of Nonoc Island in Dinagat, Surigao del Norte, Philippines.

It is almost perfectly round and nearly flawless and has a distinctive deep "inner glow" or "orient" I have never seen on other pearls.

That pearl is also bioactive it reproduced a smaller pearl by itself just like giving birth for a period of many months. I'm not sure if science can explain that but the smaller pearl is now owned by my aunt.

Mandy that pearl is suppose to bring good luck to the owner with their business. When It was owned by my Nanny (original owner) she had a succesful sari-sari store business. It was given to her by her relative who found it while fishng and diving for shells.

So far each people that I talk who found or heard about a natural pearl said the same phenomenon that it is able to reproduce. However my Nanny said that for it to reproduce you should not look at it for almost a year. I remember looking at her pearl when I was young and I saw it changes shape as she secretly showed it to me until the day I've heard and saw the small pearl probably 3 to 4 mm in size. That was one of the reasons why I became interested in pearls and gems.

The pearl could no longer reproduce probably bcoz I can't stand not looking at it for almost a year. It is just like avoiding to see something so beautiful just behind the curtain.

I know it is strange but in this part of the world there are more fantasies than realities. But I can tell you we are not dreaming about it bcoz I myself don't believe in the supernatural or even God.
