Bingo NewsNo-one can deny that pearls are beautiful and can be used in jewellery to make stunning creations. But how much do we actually know about them? Apparently there are as many as 17 different types of pearls and these fall into three main categories - natural, cultured and imitation.

Bingo NewsIt is quite amazing that something as beautiful as a pearl starts life in a most unglamorous way, growing from a tiny piece of grit inside a mollusc which is not renowned for its beauty! Although occurring naturally for many centuries the advent of cultured pearls made these wonders available to many more people who can now enjoy the indulgence of owning and wearing stunning pieces of pearl jewellery.

Back in 2011 a pearl was unearthed from an archaeological dig that was excavating a coastal aboriginal site in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. It was almost perfectly round, five millimetres in diameter and discovered in an area which was well-known as the heart of Australian cultured pearl production. The question posed by this discovery was whether or not this beautiful pearl was the creation of the modern industry, a tiny treasure that had almost been discarded and sunk down in the earth laying undiscovered until that day in 2011. There was a small chance that it was a genuine natural pearl. The latter explanation seemed unlikely but the researchers at the University of Wollongong were convinced of the authenticity of their find. The pearl didn't have the seed that appears on cultured pearls and exhibited the classic features of a perfect natural pearl.

Bingo NewsPearls have been used in jewellery making and valued highly within our society for many generations, and considered to be great objects of beauty for countless centuries. The most valuable and revered pearls occur quite naturally in oysters or fresh-water mussels but are extremely rare, with the majority of pearls being artificially made, or cultured. They are not the same quality as those that occur naturally but are much cheaper and so are more readily available to everyone.

As you know by now we like to share all the best bingo news with you; the good, the bad and the downright ugly! But we start with one of the happier stories, all about a lucky group of 121 bingo players at the Mecca Bingo night in Telford. It all happened on Halloween when the supernatural influences were working their intrigue! The players down at Telford kept their minds on the job in hand which was joining in a countrywide Halloween Firecracker event. Every participating club was given a card of numbers to tick off in one big jackpot game, with the top prize being £100,000. Our Telford tribe waited nervously on the edge of their seats for their next number to come up and some were even chanting "10" to help things along. Imagine their delight as the number 10 was called and they shouted bingo in unison!

We all know that bingo is a game of chance and we mostly play just for the fun of it as we all love being part of that happy online community.
