Found a quahog pearl!
Purple quahog pearl
I was shucking clams the other day and this one felt different than the others, as it opened very easily, but clearly wasn't dead. I quickly realized why it was so easy to pry open as this giant pearl was sitting right near the foot. I'm looking into selling it, but not really sure where to go to get it appraised to know what to ask for. Any feedback would be appreciated.
It weighs 3.4 grams & has a nice subtle swirl on one side of it.
