Pearls World

In today’s 100th episode of the Non-Textbook you will learn about the only jewelry material that is created inside living organisms. Of course, we are talking about PEARLS, which for over 2,000 years are fished off the coast of Japan and on the surrounding islands by specialized pearl fishers called Ama – women of the sea.

The Ocean: A Non-Textbook (#NiepodręcznikOceaniczny) is a joint initiative of the Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences and the Gdynia Aquarium MIR-PIB, implemented in cooperation with the Sopot Scientific Society and Today We Have.
