In the UAE, in the city of Abu Dhabi, found an ancient pearl, the age of which reaches 8 thousand years. A unique find was discovered on the island of Marava, where scientists were excavating ancient architectural structures. To determine the age of the find was possible thanks to carbon analysis of the soil in which the pearl lay all these years.

The masterpiece, created by nature, will be shown at the exhibition "10,000 years of luxury" (10,000 Years of Luxury), which is scheduled to open on October 30 at the Louvre Museum Abu Dhabi. The pearl trade was popular in the days of Mesopotamia. For many years, pearls were one of the sources of financing for the UAE economy until a cultured analogue appeared in Japan.
