Oyster is the common name for a number of different families of salt-water bivalve molluscs that live in marine or brackish habitats. In some species, the valves are highly calcified, and many are somewhat irregular in shape. An oyster can filter 1.3 gallons of water per hour - Oysters are shaped by their beds - Pearls don't only come from oysters - Humans have been eating and cultivating oysters for thousands of years ..

Keshi pearls are non-nucleated pearls typically formed as by-products of pearl cultivation. A Japanese word also meaning "poppy", it is used in Japanese for all pearls that grew without a nucleus. Originally, Keshi pearls referred to those pearls formed when a bead nucleus was rejected.
