More about Basara pearls:
The most important sources of natural pearls, which until 1908 were the only kind in use, were the oyster shoals on sandbanks off the island of Bahrein in the Persian Gulf where the best-quality large pearls were found, called Basara pearls, and the waters of the Gulf of Manaar between India and Sri Lanka’s west coast, where the pearls, according to Tavernier, were “most beautiful but rarely exceeding 3 or 4 carats in weight.” All natural pearls that came from Asian waters were termed ‘oriental pearls’ in the West.
