Almost Ate A Quahog Pearl!
I was at a raw bar in Boston, around the year 2000. I ate a raw quahog and almost choked on something. It was a dark
purple pearl. I'm from R.I. and have eaten raw quahogs all
my life and had never even heard of one! So I saved it,
thinking I would show it to a marine biologist...I never did, but I have since found out that they are indeed rare, but not "unheard of" as I thought.
