Seeing is not Believing #
Seeing is not always believing. The oyster opening livestream can be deceiving.
Oyster and Mussels #
Firstly, the oyster is always partially open before the campaign get started, making it easier to insert a pearl.
Secondly, freshwater pearls actually grow in mussels and saltwater pearls are planted in the oyster. But surprisingly, some sellers put the golden south sea pearls in the mussels and claim that they have found the golden south sea pearls.
Edison Pearl and Keshi Pearl #
Thirdly, there are two types: Edison Pearl, which is planted inside the flesh with a nucleus, resulting in a single large pearl, and Keshi Pearl, which is planted inside the mantle and usually irregular in shape. So, if you happen to get both Edison and Keshi pearls from the same oyster in a live stream, it’s most likely just for show. Don’t be fooled!
