Mother of pearl is the common name for iridescent nacre, a blend of minerals that are secreted by oysters and other mollusks and deposited inside their shells, coating and protecting them from parasites and foreign objects.
Nacre, or mother of pearl, is the same substance that is deposited around a tiny particle that becomes lodged in the mollusk--either naturally or inserted by a human. Eventually, this nacre builds around the small object and becomes a pearl.
