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 Evening Standard, The Independent, the Sydney Morning Herald, The Times, The Guardian, The Mirror, The New York Times, The Telegraph, the King Feature Syndicate and the LA Times.
