One of the most important things that people need when they are purchasing a pearl is to be able to authenticate it to determine its value. Coconut pearls can be difficult to authenticate because of their nature. Most of these pearls are made of aragonite. Coconut pearls get their name from the fact that they are believed to be formed in the embryonic region of the coconut. Even though most people believe pearls are only formed from water based molluscs, the coconut pearl is very different.

Scientists have raised some concern that these pearls actually form inside the coconut. Several scientific studies have found coconut pearls inside a coconut. The scientists believe the residue of the coconut pearl is what is left of an abortive coconut. As the remnant is exposed to the calcium salts inside the coconut, a hard shell forms around the remnant to eventually create what is known as the coconut pearl.

Critics and opponents to the idea that coconuts can generate this type of pearl ask why no such pearls were ever discovered in plantations where over three million coconuts were opened every year. Because of this questionable information, not everyone agrees on how the coconut pearl could possible exist. However, since many have been found and their existence verified, it is only the creation process that is still in question and being debated. This type of pearl has unique properties that make it even harder to determine its true origins. Perhaps one day, the questionable coconut pearl will finally be proven real or fake.
