The formation of a pearl inside a pearl oyster occurs because of the presence of foreign material inside the body of the oyster. To save itself from the undesired material, the mollusk coats the object with many layers which become the pearl. This is a type of system in which foreign material is ejected. I’m interested in this process of rejection.
