Mother-of-pearl, also known as nacre, is the hard, iridescent lining of certain mollusk shells and also forms the outer coating of pearls. Mother-of-pearl is widely used for its decorative purposes due to its lustrous sheen and durability. It is most often used as an inlay in jewelry or furniture as well as for high quality buttons.
