I have a very pearl MB seedling, with the most pearl I've ever seen. Trying to figure out what to cross with it, so as to improve the form but keep the sheen.

Speaking of seedlings here are couple of photos of a few of my seedlings during their maiden bloom this past spring. 
Some of the seedlings in this cross produced iris petals with a luminous pearl-like sheen.  I personally have not seen anything like it.  In addition to this high gloss sheen they have diamond dusting (which I have seen on numerous irises).  
The photos capture some of this pearl-like sheen but not in it's intensity.
This one is in PINK. It opens brighter than it tends to remain.
First photo is just as it is unfurling.
This was the seedling the following day. Substance was thick almost like plastic.
I hope to see better form develop and maybe more buds as the years follow.  This year there were 6 buds.
