hemispherical shaped pearl which is grown against the inside of the oyster's
shell, rather than within its tissue. Mabes occasionally appear in nature.

Cultured mabes are grown intentionally, by using a hemispheric nucleus, rather than a round one; and by implanting it against the oyster's shell, rather than within its tissue. The pearl then develops in a hemispheric form, with a flat back. While in the oyster a mabe pearl is actually considered a blister pearl not a mabe pearl.
