Found a pearl, it is probably tridacna gigas pearl
probably tridacna gigas pearl
Early 2015, I visited a beach in Java Island, Indonesia. On the beach sand, I took some clams, sand, and other beautiful things as my collection. After few months, when I take in gemstone business I showed my collection to my friend and family. They tell me that one of the collection is a pearl. I am surprised. Then, I search via internet what kind of the pearl that I have.
The pearl has measurements 33x19x11mm. Weight 48.15 carats. Colour is white. It has sugary surface texture and banding inside. It is probably from Tridacna Gigas. The pearl was found out of the clam, when I found on the beach. So, it looks like nature also shaped the face of the pearl. So surface of the pearl has little various colour and natural shaped. This pearl has unique shape. It is same with a shoe.
