Mother-of-pearl (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

nacre

'mother-of-pearl' is the definition.
(synonyms)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for nacre that I've seen before include "inside of shell" , "Constituent of inlay furniture" , "valuable material" , "Pearl's mum" , "Mother of pearl" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian, the LA Times, The Telegraph, the Evening Standard, The Independent, The Mirror, the King Feature Syndicate, the Sydney Morning Herald, The New York Times and The Times.
