blister pearl
by: Kari

If the pearl you found is attached to the wall of the shell, it is called a blister pearl. If it cannot be loosened, then it probably needs to be cut off, or a part of the shell cut out of the whole shell. You can watch a video on this page

Pearl Videos

and see how some blister pearls are knocked off the shell, while others are just left.

The second or third video on that page shows what I am talking about.

The pearls that do not loosen easily must be cut off and usually part of the shell is left on the bottom.

Andrew, thanks for sharing about finding a pearl.
