Cygnet Bay, Pearl farm

When we left we went to a Pearl farm in Cygnet Bay and we did a tour. The tour went for an hour, but it was really cool. They told us that Pearls are made by oysters, this is how they make them: first they get an oyster out from the ocean, then they put a ball of Mother of Pearl (which is made from the oyster shell) in the shell, they put it back in the ocean in a net so that the oysters can create a layer of pearl over the small ball, but sometimes the oysters spit it out, after that they bring them out and open the shell to see if they got a Pearl inside. At the end we got to see the second biggest Pearl in the Australia  (which is Cygnet Bay's biggest one).
