Abstract
Meta- material like behavior of natural Pearl are studied in this work. This work makes an attempt to analyze the Left Handed Maxwellian (LHM) properties of Pearl surface. The investigations carried out on natural Pearl specimen are optical reflectance and optical absorbance. Optical reflectance of Pearl surface with plane polarized monochromatic light in the form of verification of Fresnel equation shows distinct difference with that of conventional ordinary material. The UV-VIS analysis is also carried out for further analysis. The results obtained from the optical reflectance characteristics using polarized light indicate LHM behavior as expected for a LHM (type II or type II) meta-material. The overall analysis of the results shows the LHM character of Pearl surface.
