What are Jyotish Pearls and why they are auspicious?
There are two moments in a diver’s life:
One, when a beggar, he prepares to plunge;
Then, when a prince, he rises with his prize.
These words by Robert Browning are apt for describing the rarity of the pearl and its capacity to change the fortune from a beggar to a prince in an instant.
But is it that easy to get a Natural Pearl?
The formation of Natural Pearl in the lap of Mother Nature is entirely accidental event with no human intervention or a chemical intervention.
It is believed that a Natural Pearl is made in nature by accident when a grain of sand or an intruder organism enters an oyster. In order to safeguard it and immobilize the intruder the mollusc secrets a nacreous like substance. This process is repeated over a number of years till you actually have a real pearl
The chances of Getting a real Natural Pearl is 1 to a million (10,00,000)
