Is this a Pearl?

On my anniversary eating oysters found this in my oyster shell. Just wondering what it may be.

Hard to say
by: Kari

It's hard to say from only a photo, but there appears to be a black blister pearl attached to the shell. Last week I was involved in a discussion about why some pearls from shells that normally produce white pearls are black and even the pearl experts themselves do not have clear answers to that question.

Thank you for sharing.
