Interference Pearls are made by mica coated with titanium dioxide. When you look at them straight on they appear more whitish. When viewed at an angles you see glorious irridescent colors. The presence of the difference colors is due to the thickness of the titanium dioxide coating. By varying the coatings you get all the wonderful colors of the rainbow.
