The pearl is a symbol of perfection and incorruptibility; it is a symbol
of long life and fertility, and because of its luster it is often considered
a MOON symbol. Buried within the OYSTER
shell, the pearl represents hidden knowledge, and it is highly feminine.
Many eastern philosophies (Buddhism, Taoism, Hindu) relate the "flaming
pearl" to wisdom and spiritual awareness.
