Australia's longest running pearl farm has enjoyed a rare moment this week — opening up a pearl shell to discover two natural pearls.


"But what's interesting about this is that often natural pearls are very small or not particularly great quality, but with this, they were quite large and there were two of them sitting side by side."

"We sell tens of thousands of cultured pearls, but so very few natural pearls," he said.

"They can be 10 to 100 times more valuable than a similar shape and sized cultured pearl."
