Pearls are considered organic gemstones, and are formed in shellfish, namely mussels, oysters and sea snails, as a natural defense against irritants such as granules of sand and grits. When these irritants gets inside the shell, the shellfish secretes layers upon layers of aragonite (CaCO3 calcium carbonate), that together with conchiolin and a small 2% of water, will gradually build up to form the solid pearl.

The pearl gemstone, also known as Mukta or Moti, according to Vedic astrology, is the primary gem for the Moon or Chandra. The ascendants that benefits the most for wearing a pearl gemstone are Cancer, Scorpio, Aries and Pisces.
It can be worn as a ring or pendant.

The pearl should be worn first on a Monday, an hour after sunset, when the moon is waxing. It should be set in a white metal. If set in a ring, it should be worn on the pinkie finger of the right hand for males, left hand for females. Due to the pearl's softness, best is to have it set in a pendant.
