53c Raiatea, Pearls, Pearls and more Pearls
and Raiatea, and touring one of these farms was our next stop. Each step of
the process to create these beautiful cultured pearls was explained to us.

and carefully insert a new sphere of shell which the living oysters would
slowly cover in a stunning array colours over time.
