  Pearl \Pearl\, n. [OE. perle, F. perle, LL. perla, perula,
     probably fr. (assumed) L. pirulo, dim. of L. pirum a pear.
     See {Pear}, and cf. {Purl} to mantle.]
     1. (Zool.) A shelly concretion, usually rounded, and having a
        brilliant luster, with varying tints, found in the mantle,
        or between the mantle and shell, of certain bivalve
        mollusks, especially in the pearl oysters and river
        mussels, and sometimes in certain univalves. It is usually
        due to a secretion of shelly substance around some
        irritating foreign particle. Its substance is the same as
        nacre, or mother-of-pearl.
     Note: Pearls which are round, or nearly round, and of fine
           luster, are highly esteemed as jewels, and at one time
           compared in value with the precious stones. Since
           development of cultured pearls, the relative value has
           diminished somewhat, though the best pearls are still
           expensive, and natural pearls even more so. Artificial
           pearls may be made of various materials, including
           material similar to that of natural pearls; these are
           less expensive than natural or cultured pearls. See
           {cultured pearl}, below.
           [1913 Webster +PJC]
     2. Hence, figuratively, something resembling a pearl;
        something very precious.

        of nacre are deposited onto the seed by the oyster. Such
        pearls, being more easily obtained than natural pearls
        from wild oysters, are less expensive.
        [1913 Webster]
