The February born will find
  Sincerity and peace of mind;
    Freedom from passion and from care,
      If they the Pearl (also green Amethyst) will wear.

        in "Notes and Queries", May 11, 1889, p. 371

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls;
  Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

If that a pearl may in a toad's head dwell,
  And may be found too in an oyster shell.

Black is a pearl in a woman's eye.
      - George Chapman, An Humorous Day's Mirth
