Like nacreous pearls, tridacna pearls grow in mollusks. Specifically, they form in bivalve mollusks of the Tridacna genus of clams. This genus includes giant clams of enormous size. Technically, tridacna pearls are calcareous concretions because they aren’t made of nacre. In a tridacna pearl, instead of forming in sheets, the mineral aragonite arranges itself radially. In a fine specimen, this results in an exciting flame structure that rolls across the gem.

These clams grow in tropical reefs in the Indo-Pacific region, primarily in Indonesia and the Philippines. The giant clams are indeed known to produce such pearls but only a few are recognised by gemologists. they are unique and rare to come by
