Amazing find of 7 pearls in my first time trying a raw oyster!
7 Natural Pearls in One Oyster
While on vacation with my boyfriend in Destin, Florida last week (June 2009), we ate at The Crabshack. He has been introducing me to new things and ordered 6 raw oysters on the half shell...I have never had them before and was hesitant but when he placed the oyster on a cracker and put it in my mouth, as I chewed, I bit on something hard and to my surprise pulled out a small pearl about the size of a BB.
As I then continued to chew I pulled out 6 more pearls from this one, first-time oyster!
The other pearl, the size of a BB, is irregular shaped, kind of oblong with a brown ring around it. The other 5 are very tiny varying in color.
I am curious as to how rare a finding this is and am trying to figure how to display them as in jewelry or something.
Anyone have any suggestions?
