... a grain of sand gets into the little muscle and irritates the oyster. In response, the oyster covers that irritant with a secretion. The longer the irritation is there, the more the oyster coats it. Pearl oysters and can be quite rough and ugly.

The worst storms, gales, even hurricanes will not dislodge it.
