I found a pearl in NYC... I think...

My NY Oyster?
I was having oysters with my girlfriend and some friends in NYC last night when I noticed a "lump" in one of my oysters after eating it. I washed out the shell and took it home suspecting that it could be a pearl of some sort. I know basically nothing about pearls, other than what I've read from this site, but I am curious about what I have and what to do with it, if anything. Thanks.
