Found 150 Pearls inside a Dozen Seashells


The 2014 Norwegian summer has blown all records and is ranked the hottest in decades with the result of abnormal behavior among living creatures: Sisters Katy (7) and Mina (11) found amazingly 150 white pearls inside a few mussel seashells.

- We have never seen anything like this, says Else Holmefjord to NRK.

Holmefjord and daughters Katy and Mina own a cabin in Lindås, Hordaland County. They have never found pearls there before, but this summer they were mildly surprised by what they found in the waters.

- The kids wanted to go crab fishing so we would just pick some mussels as bait. When we opened the largest shells, pearls literary exploded out. They were everywhere, she continues.

Inside some of the shells they found up to 30 pearls.

I don't think they are worthless

Congrats to Katy and Mina on finding pearl treasure!

The article continues to say that the pearls Katy and Mina found are worthless, but I think they do have some value as you can see on my sale pages for blue mussel pearls.

People desire them for a variety of reasons, sometimes to complete a natural pearl collection, etc.
