In 2006 a group of us spent 2 weeks sailing around French Polynesia. One of our stops was at the Motu Pearl Farm. We were greeted by a lovely lady who was married to a Dane. She gave a presentation of how the black pearls are cultured, showing us every step of the way. It was fascinating and we learned... More
