Mother of pearl artifacts have been found going back as far as 2400 B.C. and were used for creating dazzling inlays in musical instruments, furniture, art and decorations of many kinds. High value was placed on mother of pearl in numerous cultures. Some, today, believe mother of pearl can heal, bring one deeper faith, purity and clarity.
The process of obtaining and crafting with mother of pearl has not changed in centuries. Mother of pearl is a smooth and iridescent substance forming the inner layer of a shell, usually oysters. Even today, people scour beaches rich with shells and collect them to sell to local artisans. In their shops, the artisans carefully and meticulously hand cut the mother of pearl into uniform pieces. To create beautiful, vibrant mosaics on these urns for ashes, the artisan then hand applies each mother of pearl piece with care and precision. By the time one of these memorial urns reaches you, you will find yourself holding a truly unique product that embodies nature's elegance.
