Pearl Family Business

Hello everyone, today i just wanted to share one of my favorite picture taken by my dad #stephanesayeb in my other dad's #francktehaamatai #pearl #farm in #fakarava. That's what I call #familybusiness  !!!

This picture represents all the #buoys used to hang the #oysters while our famous #Tahitian #black #pearls are formed. 18 to 24 months depending on their constitution is the time the pinctada margaritifera variety cumingii will stay underwater to produce a pearl with a minimum of 0.8mm #nacre #layer #thickness which is a requirement of the #French #Polynesia government for our pearls to be exported out of the country.
