Could it be a pearl?

I visited Gibbys in Old Montreal this weekend and ordered OYSTERS ON THE HALF SHELL. As I ate one, I thought I felt a broken piece of the shell in my mouth. Without spitting the oyster onto my plate, I carefully and subtly removed the object from my mouth only to find it was NOT a piece of the shell but actually looked kind of like a popcorn kernel!
After looking at it closer, I started wondering if it could be a pearl? It was very exciting so if it is a pearl, I'm lucky and honored to have been blessed with this rare opportunity. I would like to somehow make it into a small keepsake necklace.
