"The oysters, the scallops, the mollusk, the pearl is related to the maritime cosmology just as much as to the symbol system of the gender. Not only they receive the holy energies concentrating in the Water, in the Moon, in the Woman, but - for various reasons - they are also symbols to these powers, which is explained by the likeness between the scallop and the female genitalia, the oyster's connection to the water and the Moon, and the gynecological and embryological allegory - the pearl forming in the oyster." - Mircea Eliade
