Damien Posted January 10, 2015 Report Share Posted January 10, 2015 Hi everyone, A few months ago i bought a box full of tortoiseshell, ivory, and mother of pearl scraps at auction from an antique restorer that was retiring. Included in the box were a few unusual pieces of dark mother of pearl (i think, from a european fan). I was just wondering and hoping whether someone could possibly tell me what species of shellfish this type of mother of pearl could might have come from? It has a huge degree of shimmer and colour variation, with heavy pinkish purple to greenish tones I was thinking either black lipped oyster or rainbow lipped oyster?
