Mother-of-pearl, also known as nacre or Capiz in Filipino, is an oyster-like shell called Placuns Placenta. These shells are commonly known as pearl oysters. The Capiz shell has a translucent character and is often used for windows and lamps in the Philippines. These shells do not belong to protected marine species, so they can be legally fished. Besides its use in windows and lamps, these shells are also widely used in artwork. By keeping the shells moist after they are caught, they can be shaped slightly before a resin is poured over them. The shells are made up of several layers that lie on top of each other, and the thickness of these layers can vary depending on the mollusk group. Although real mother-of-pearl can be used as glass for windows, it is much more fragile. However, it is also much cheaper than glass.
