souffle pearls

I know that souffle pearls are formed around bits of mud that dry and form a beautiful color nacre. Are other methods ever used to nucleate these pearls. We cut open a supposed souffle pearl which had an odd cubed shape and found some kind of hard white substance inside. Can you explain this to me? These pearls were sent from China and not inexpensive.
