Like amber, pearl is not a gemstone mined from the earth, but it’s still regarded as one and is course prized as jewelry. For millennia pearls have been a symbol of purity, refinement and wealth. Ancient cultures also considered pearls a vehicle for channeling wisdom and spiritual guidance. When uses in skin care, traditionally the Chinese, Mayan and Indian civilizations believed that ground pearls could help erase the signs of aging. They were right, as pearls have shown the ability to smooth skin texture, renew skin cells and even battle acne.
