Cobra and other natural pearls and fossils are acquired mostly in the Indonesian-Malaysian lands. They are uncovered in caves, jungles, sacred spots, and building sites when the natives dig and find these fossilized remains of snakes, ancient fish, animals, plants, trees, etc. that contain these PEARLS. They are usually tumbled to make them more attractive. The Asians have been revering these OTHER PEARLS for thousands of years as we see in the ancient Sanskrit classic, Sri Garuda Puranam....
"Besides (natural) oyster pearls there are seven other types found in conch shells, wild boar heads, elephant heads, king cobra heads, bamboo stems, clouds, and fish heads.
Pearls from elephant heads, bamboo stems, boar heads,fish mouths, and conch shells are lusterless, even though possessed ofother auspicious qualities. Pearls from conch shells are usually the sizeof a large kona (the large end of a drum stick), and they possess a colorsimilar to their host shell.
Fish pearls are perfectly round and symmetrical. Theypossess a yellowish hue like the scales of the pathenam fish which ofteninhabit the mouths of deep sea whales.
Boar pearls are colored like a boar's tusks and are foundonly in remote parts of the world. Such pearls are auspicious symbols ofthe Varaha boar incarnation of the Supreme Lord, Sri Vishnu.
Pearls derived from bamboo appear like hailstones in color,and they are found only within bamboo that has grown in a region populatedby religious people.
Pearls from the cobra's hood are perfectly round, like fish pearls, and they radiate a natural effulgence. By repeated washing, a snake pearl becomes as lustrous as a polished sword blade. Anyone possessing such a naga-mani attains piety, rare good fortune, and eventually becomes illustrious as a leader of men, complete with a great collection of all precious gems.
Upon acquiring such a snake pearl, the owner should havethe rite of installation performed by a priest who is learned in religiousformalities. After hearing from the owner how the pearl was obtained andconducting the benedictory ritual, the priest should formally install thejewel inside the owner's house. On such an auspicious occasion, the skybecomes filled with dark and heavy rain clouds, thunder, and flashing lightning,such as exhibited at the time of universal dissolution. A man in possessionof such a snake pearl will never be troubled by snakes, demonic beings,diseases, or disturbances in any form.
Cloud pearls, being naturally effulgent like the sun,illuminate the sky in all directions and dispel the darkness of cloudydays. Glowing brighter than the combined light of the moon, the twinklingstars, and fire, a cloud-born pearl dissipates even the darkest night exactlylike the sunrise. A cloud pearl is so priceless that the entire earth,with her oceans filled with countless jewels and covered in layers of gold,would not be equal in value. Cloud pearls rarely reach this earthly world,because they are usually taken away by the demigods.
Even a low born man would become supreme ruler of the entire world if, as result of some past pious actions, he were to come into possession of such a pearl. The appearance of such a man on earth who obtained a cloud pearl during his lifetime would bring good fortune not only to himself, but to the entire human race as well. No form of evil could even touch the land within an 8,000 mile radius of his birthplace."Summary translation of Sanskrit texts from Sri Garuda-Puranam,
