Girl with a pearl!!!
Our family has gathered for almost 15 years for "crab leg night", and have never seen a crab leg pearl. On March 12th 2010, we picked crab legs up from an Albertsons store in Yuma, AZ and couldn't wait to have dinner! Imagine our surprise when we discovered the "pearl". It was in the leg near the joint. We thought it was a weird bone growth or even a tumor of some sort. After googling different possibilities we discovered this site and after looking at the other photos, we realized that we too, had a "pearl"! It has different shades of the crab leg, and we think it resembles a little "brain". It seems to have changed color a bit and it seems a little harder than when we first saw it. Enjoy our "pearl" we are saving ours, and are going to bring it out at all of our "crab leg nights" in the future!!
