The traditional sea-use of harvesting pearls from oyster beds in the Persian Gulf shaped the island of Bahrainís economy for millennia. As the best-known source of pearls since ancient times, the Gulf industry reached the apex of its prosperity at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.
