Found what could be an abalone pearl amongst grandfathers old tools
I came across a small plastic bag with a small hard rock like object when I was clearing up my husbands shed. His grandfather had given him some old tools before he had passed away and it was in one of the boxes. When I googled it I figured it was an abalone pearl but thought it was only worth a few dollars. I came across it again today and thought I'd look it up again and realised that if it is one it could be worth a lot more.
Pop was 98 when he died and had travelled all over Australia so we have no idea of where he may have got it from.
Who would I see in Australia to find out for sure if it is a pearl and what it would be worth? It has had a tiny hole drilled in it so I am assuming it was worn as a pendant
