“As the first drop of rain fell onto the ocean it was overrun by the enormous waves. Because it was so small it called: „I am so unimpressive in this large area“. The ocean replied: „Small water drop, your modesty dignifies you; therefore you should be rewarded in return. I will turn you into a drop of light. You will be the purest of all jewels, the queen among all and you will have power over womankind“. This is how the pearl was born. (From an old Chinese fairy tale)
