Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm

Written By Lily Cleggett

On Thursday Mum, Dad, Lockie and I went to Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm because I had a surprise from Lizzie waiting there.

First we went to the gallery to pick up my surprise.  It was a Keshi Pearl from Lizzie.  It was a tear drop shaped pearl and it was really pretty.  I loved it!  Thank you Lizzie for my Keshi Pearl.  A Keshi pearl grows without anyone having to help it.

Then we went to do the tour.We learned that some pearls are silver, some are gold, some are pink, some are blue and some are black.  The pearls grow in oyster shells. They put a seed called a nucleus inside the shell.  Then they put it in the water so the pearls can grow. The pearl grows and they can take it out.  We watched the lady take a pearl out.  The colour of the pearl that the lady took out of the oyster was silver.

The lady showed us lots of different pearls and she showed us a gold pearl.  She put a pearl necklace that cost $250 000 around my neck.

Then we went home and I showed my friends the Keshi pearl.

  5. Great writing, Lilly. You’ve shown me another place I’ll have to visit when we head up there. It’s amazing how something so beautiful grows inside such a plain shell. (P.S. The “A pearl in the shell” photo is amazing!)
