    Not being the pearl person in general, just because I am probably too brusque to take good care of them, I am very much interested in the Sea of Cortez pearls.

    I don’t know what strikes me more, the their unusual look, or the fact that their production is being restored, as very few things in this world are. And in the context of our failed protection of the environment, maybe it is one of efforts that should be an example for us?

    I read that they started from a student project that was graded a “C”, is this true?

    If so, it is even more interesting, as it could serve as the great learning story, for our students that come up with interesting projects that the world marks a “C”, and they get discouraged. (Just yesterday I spoke with a talented young lady to whom I said, never get back to your home crying because your project got a C. Prove that it is an A+ because the teachers grading you might be idiots).

    These pearls are expensive, but I am planning to make something, or replace the pearls in my mom’s ring.

    So I wanted to invite the people who have them, or have visited the farm, to maybe share the experience? I don’t even know which ones I like best, what is the preferred color?

    This is a question for Douglas - each harvest yields its own best, and they are hardly ever the same colour.
