(Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia)
I'm in the Australian Navy and posted to the Northern Territory. I was enjoying some oysters with my mate a few nights ago and I bit down on a pearl! It doesn't look like any of the pearls I have seen on this sight, it is not much bigger than a match head however it is perfectly round and pure white. I didn't think it was a real 'pearl' pearl as I'd never heard of them being found in oysters!
Luckily I prefer my oysters natural because the other half dozen were put into the grill for Kilpatrick! Phew!
I wish I could add a photo but I am on a defence computer that doesn't allow me to do so.
