This article is about an older version of DF.

Little is known about the famed pearl. Likely, Toady has not yet gotten around to fully implementing pearls yet. The creature definitions for the mussel and oyster include a [PEARL] token, but this token does not actually allow specifying what the pearls would be made of (not to mention the fact that said materials are not actually defined). If you create a material with the [PEARL] property and add it to a creature, though, its butchered remains should be usable at a Craftsdwarf's workshop (much like horn and ivory/tooth).
