In early Twentieth Century near the cultural center of Kyoto JAPAN lies the ancient Lake Biwa where in 1914 pearl farmers began cultivating fresh water pearls. So successful were their efforts,that the gnarly mussel Hyriopsis schiegelii, brought forth the “Biwa Pearl” which became synonymous with the finest Japanese Freshwater Pearl. Alas, these beauties became extinct in the 1980’s and at present, the majority of cultured freshwater are from China.
