Freshwater cultured pearls are pearls that are cultivated by oysters in freshwater environments, such as lakes and ponds, as opposed to saltwater environments like oceans. These pearls are formed by inserting a small piece of mantle tissue or a bead into the mollusk, which then coats the irritant with layers of nacre, a combination of calcium carbonate and conchiolin. This process creates the pearl over time.
