New Cortez Mabe Pearls shown at GJX Tucson Gem Show!
This last February we had a group of 200 new Cortez Mabe Pearls for Sale and display...and what made these so Special????
They were produced using Sustainable, farm-raised Mexican Black-Lip Pearl Oysters (Pinctada mazatlanica). Their main colors were Silvery-Gray with overtones of Green, and some had very large sizes! Very limited production of these pearls will be produced from time to time for your enjoyment and for serious pearl collectors
