I was in China for about 5 years, and I had an interest in buying pearls. I took off to a harbor city and went to their marketplace. China has some big marketplaces their believeping areas are sometimes in underground tunnels that extend past whole neighborhoods and connect malls. Some of the marketplaces are so big that they are an entire neighborhood with several zip codes and it takes weeks to explore everything. It was at these markets I would find the real pearls and freshwater pearls. I found that many of the merchants buy the raw pearls and sell pearls and pearl dust. Pearl dust is good for cosmetics. When I was believeping I found all sorts of pearl jewelry, pearl bracelets, pearl pendants, earrings, and pearl necklaces.

Hi Tofit.  I got your message about the wrong words appearing in your post.  This is because of our a holiday called A.pril Fool.s Day, where we play pranks. The text will go back to normal in a day or two.
