    In HISTORY

    Searching for gold and spices, Christopher Columbus reached Margarita's coastline on August 15, 1498 and found himself with a friendly welcome by the Guaiqueri Indians, who brought their most fascinating present: NATURAL PEARLS

    Starting the year 1499, expeditions to the isle took place and ever since Margarita Island has been known as "The Pearl of the Caribbean".

    For more than 500 years, the pearls of Margarita, Cubagua and Coche Island have adorned many, until the XX Century brought the cultivated pearl from Japan.

    Today, you find in Margarita Island many places were to shop the pearls for very little money.

    The Mother-Pearls in Margarita, Cubagua and Coche Island belongs to the species Pinctada imbricata, were the size of the shell rare is over 3 1/2 inches (7 cm).

    It's found in shallow and almost clear waters, close to the surface, over sandy buttom , were the grain is usually big surrounded by dead corals, shells and rocks in a depth interval of 15 - 90 ft. (3 - 30 m.).

    The interior of the valve is cover with beautiful nacar and the exterior has a brownish-black color with radial stripes that vary from light brown to reddish colors.
