Found a pearl while eating at a clam bake

my little quahog pearl
We were all eating lobster, clams, and mussels and enjoying. Then I popped a clam in my mouth and bit down. At first I thought it was a piece of shell or maybe a rock. I finally separated it from the rest of the clam in my mouth and found a small dark purple circular pearl. Then I was questioning whether or not it was a pearl because I did not know if pearls could come from clams. I would love to know if it is worth anything and if it is I would like to sell it.
