Tahitian Pearls

By: PEF Cavanaugh

As soon as Tahitian Black PearlsTahitian Black Cultured Pearls began selling in the marketplace in the '70's, they were marketed as Tahitian Black Pearls since they were so darkly colored. It is astonishing how often black pearl is thought the same as Tahitian Pearl. This was all the outcome of a enormously successful advertising campaign.
Once become aware of more of these wonderful gems you will know that the term Black Pearls, when used to describe Tahitian Pearls is not inaccurate, there are numerous Tahitian Pearls that are not black as there are black ones. The Tahitian Black Pearl comes in a full collection of colors such as grays, greens, browns and blues.
An additional unusual point about this advertising effort is that these pearls are not from Tahiti. Pearl growing happens about many of the lesser islands and atolls in the group of islands called Polynesia, of which Tahiti is only one of of this group of South Pacific Islands.
The mollusk that produces the Tahitian Pearl Oyster is related to the other saltwater pearls. The essential difference other than the dimension of the mollusk is the tint of the interior of the shell, sometimes called "mother-of-pearl". In the Tahitian pearl the inside of the shell and the edging of the soft mantle flesh that is the lining of the shell are black, this is how oyster got its moniker of "black lipped" oyster. The Tahitian Black Pearl or Black Pearl Oyster as the group of animals is named ranges in the South Pacific from the Africa to California. At one time Spain, in the early days Baja California, had rather a large pearling activity for these Tahitian Pearls. So rigorous was the operation that Spain decimated population of these oysters in the California Coastal region, as they wiped out the enormous pearl areas of South American waters.
