Mother of pearl?
This Jewelry Box has been hand crafted using traditional Korean Mother of pearl inlay and lacquer ware. Mother of pearl inlay is the handcrafting of sea shells. Oysters, mollusks, and abalone shells are lined naturally with crystals of calcium carbonate. These crystals produce iridescent colors when reflecting light.
Shells are inlaid into a design onto a wood box then glazed with protective lacquer. The result is a reflective item with a shiny finish. Because the crystals form naturally each inlay has a slightly unique look reflecting in light! Korean mother of pearl goods have been popular in Asia since the Goryeo dynasty 932-1392 AD.
