A species of pearl oyster, or marine bivalve mollusk known as a "pearl oyster," is called Pinctada maxima. The Gold-lipped oyster and the Silver-lipped oyster come in two different color variants. The world's largest pearl oysters are these bivalves. They are crucial to the cultured pearl industry as they are raised to create South Sea pearls and have a highly robust inner shell layer made of nacre, often known as "mother of pearl."
