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