Comment(s).

¹. The pearl producing mollusc which lives in Japanese waters is the small oyster pinctada martensi. The centre of pearl culture carried out in Japanese waters is in Ago-wan, a bay which is situated near Shima Hanto, which itself forms the greater part of the Ise-shima National Park. The geographic and climactic conditions are perfect for the production and growth of pearl oysters which demand water of uniform shallow depth never falling below 10°C. The small bays along the peninsula provide protected water in which permanent oyster beds may be safely laid (Robert Webster, ‘Gems. Their Sources, Descriptions and Identification’, fifth edition, 1994). The beautiful lustre of pearls is known as the ‘orient’ and is due to a combination of two optical effects. These are the breaking up of light into minute spectra by diffraction caused by the irregular edges of the overlapping crystal plates of aragonite, and by the interference of light at the end films given by the same platelets.
