Mother of Pearl The name is aptly given to the lustrous pearly lining of the shells of pearl-bearing molluscs.

When polished it is similar in appearance to pearl and is extensively used for cutlery handles, buttons, buckles and other small ornamental objects. It has always been a favourite for the creation of ornaments, especially of a religious nature such as crucifixes and statuettes.

In the East it is used as an inlay for the walls and furniture of mosques.
