These pearls have such a resemblance to the natural cultivated pearls that sometimes it is very difficult to tell them apart.

Mallorca pearls are man-made on a solid glass balls coated with a special paste. They begin from dull glass of high density with specific weight similar to that of the fine pearls. These nuclei are then dipped into a special, pearly liquid, hemage, an adhesive paste made of oil and ground up fish scales or mother-of-pearl for their iridescence. The coated nuclei are then dried and polished by hand to remove imperfections such as bumps and blemishes.

Majorca pearls lack individuality as every majorca pearl is perfectly matched and round-shaped whereas no two natural pearls are alike. Natural pearl's peculiarity stems from its certain blemish just like birthmark or fingerprint.
