    Pearls should glow, be tradeable with fishing villagers, have the same rarity as the totem of undying, found in sunken ships or be found from clams that could attack you ,for example, biting the player.

    The pearls could be the same item as the Heart of the Sea.

    they should make it an ore in the sand thats used to make the best tools and armour for underwater but they would have to be quite rare

    Add clams the size of blocks. They could be in the Deep parts of the Ocean so you gotta venture deep for these valuable pearls

    pearls as a concept are a neat addition, but maybe have them be placable or emit light. i'd see them being mircoblock/head sized and able to place at various angles. could be good for interesting small lighting details

    Maybe you can craft pearl bracelets that give you water breathing when held

    Yes! If there are ender pearls, there should be regular pearls. It makes a lot of since.

    • Trading, maybe like five-ten for an emerald, dependent on rarity.
    • placing a pearl could attract drowned, allowing for drowned farms.
    • pearl dust (ground up pearls) to add shine/luster to anything dealing with ores.
    • like the drowned, fish will be attracted to them and school around them.
    • Possibly could be combined with Elytra to create pearlescent wings.
    • Increase spawn rate of certain aquatic mobs.
    • Pearl clusters (rare), similar to turtle egg clusters, spawn in clusters of 1-3 possibly higher.

    I'm just going off the top of my head right now.

    So here's an idea of what they could be used for: 
    Make them throw-able like an Ender Pearl, but most blocks if hit will do nothing except drop the pearl so you can pick it back up again. 
    If it hits a Target Block though, teleport the player like an Ender Pearl. 

    This would be useful as a more common version of the Ender Pearl, and it would be useful to the dungeon-builders out there who want a teleportation mechanic, but only want it to be used in certain ways so it doesn't break the challenge of the rest of the dungeon. Since it only works on Target Blocks, that also means a redstone contraption could be activated upon landing. 

    It would also be a neat easter egg as most players would throw the Pearl once and think it does nothing.

    Or just clams that can give you random valuables when broken open, or possibly just sand.

    Pearls are made when sand or parasites get caught in a clams mouth. To soothe themselves from the pain, they wrap the aggressor in their saliva which eventually becomes a pearl.

    While I don't know their use, putting items like sand, gravel, dirt, rotten flesh, etc, into clams could make them turn it into pearls, like a sort of farm. The items could still be encased inside.

    Maybe the pearls can be use to make new furniture blocks like quartz did but shinier.

    Oooooh yess maybe if you break sand underwater with silk touch or like a shovel, then you some times get a pearl! I think that would be super cool

    Yes!! You could maybe make Pearl blocks out of them or you could crush the pearls to add them to dye to make the item dyed shiny. Like if you added the Pearl dust to a cauldron and dunked leather armour in it the armour would go shiny- almost like enchanted items

    No creo que sean aceptadas, sobre todo si las ostras perlíferas fueran mobs hostiles o haya que matarla para conseguir la perla, ya que nunca han aceptado animales en peligro de extinción con las anteriores características. Por eso no tenemos cocodrilos ni tiburones.

    for a second, I thought you meant enderpearls. problem is, in pvp, they refer to ender pearls as just pearls, which is easier, so adding actuall pearls would force us to say "E pearls", which is just inconvenient

    I think the idea is relatively good: it sure would add like an underwater ore kinda.. but at the same time like what would be the use? I think if you did that it could be like a trap. Where like turtle eggs if you step on it it breaks but it would drop things like either a rare item such as gold or diamonds… or instead a mob such as a silverfish or something since that’s what pearls are made as…

    This could also include clams. If you were very lucky, you might find a Heart of the Sea inside a clam.

    Pearls should have magic capabilities.

    I would also like to see the different color varieties of pearls be available with the black pearl being the most rare.
