This is the outside of the shell

I went to a garage sale to find accessories for summer. I was looking through the necklace section at some cut shells and touched a bump on the back of one of the pieces of shells, but when I turned it around I noticed what looked like a defect on it (a bump)... it was unique so I took that one and paid $1 for it. When I showed my mom, she said it was a Blister Pearl but we have no idea how much it could be worth, how common it is, or what kind of shell it is. Can you please help? Thanks!

Thank you, Kari. I was curious to know; the previous owner had it in a box full of accessories she had in her own second hand shop, and was now having a garage sale clearance... only God knows where this piece originally came from! I do love wearing it. I wear it backwards so the blister pearl's visible and is a great conversation starter. ;)

Hi Nan, Well, for sure that is a blister pearl like your mom said. It's too difficult to actually tell what type of shell it is, but it looks like you "found your pearl". I wonder if the owner could have told you more about it. She might have found it herself. It will be fun wearing it. As far as value, I don't think there would be much. Thanks for sharing.
