World's oldest pearl discovered off Abu Dhabi

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The world's oldest natural pearl has been discovered on an island off Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

The 8,000-year-old pearl was found during excavations at Marawah Island which also revealed the earliest architecture in the UAE.

Authorities said the discovery proved that pearls had been traded in the region since Neolithic times.

Archaeologists used radiocarbon dating to determine that the pearl dated back to between 5800 and 5600 BC.
