A pearl is a hard object produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle ) of a living shelled mollusk . Just like the shell of a mollusk, a pearl is made up of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. The ideal pearl is perfectly round and smooth, but many other shapes of pearls ( baroque pearls ) occur. The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as gemstones and objects of beauty for many centuries, and because of this, the word pearl has become a metaphor for something very rare, fine, admirable, and valuable.

Platinum is an extremely rare metal,occurring at a concentration of only 0.005 ppm in the Earth 's crust . It is sometimes mistaken for silver (Ag). Platinum is often found chemically uncombined as native platinum and alloyed with iridium as platiniridium. Most often the native platinum is found in secondary deposits; platinum is combined with the other platinum group metals in alluvial deposits. The alluvial deposits used by pre-Columbian people in the Chocó Department , Colombia are still a source for platinum group metals. Another large alluvial deposit is in the Ural Mountains , Russia, and it is still mined.
