I Found a Bright Purple Pearl in a Clam I was Eating.
by Brandon Welborn
We rake our own clams in Wrightsville Beach, NC all the time. One evening we were enjoying our catch for the day and I bit on something hard. I spit it out and it was a perfect bright purple pearl. I've been reading lots of stories and looking at lots of pictures of other similar pearls that were worth a good amount of money. I'm interested in selling it but I'm not really sure how to go about getting it properly appraised and sold. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated. I have a gemologist evaluating it now so I can't take a picture of it but I will as soon as I can.
