Are the oysters that make pearls true oysters?

    If you are talking about the oysters that you eat, no.  But they do come from the Margaritiferae, a family of oysters and Unionidae a family of fresh water muscles.  These muscles and oysters are usually found in warmer water areas. The edible oysters belong to the Ostrea family and are found mostly in Europe and America.
