As part of my Seekrit Art Project #2, which is currently eating my brain, I'm sort of drawing a lot of pearls.

While I was working on them, I discovered something interesting:

So here are my questions to you guys! Where did the Pearl Foetus originate? How common a phenomenon is it? What does it grow up to be? And why does it spend part of its life cycle wrapped in nacre?  (ETA: And, of course, what sort of fashion statement does one make by wearing such beasties?)

Anyone may play.  Answers may win an Internets.
