juniata river pearls
by David Pierce
I can remember my grandfather telling me stories of him and his brothers finding fw pearls while fishing the Juniata. He and I often looked while netting bait but never got lucky. My pap is gone now but I still look every time I go to the river. So far I've found 3, one of which was perfectly round and the other 2 were odd shaped. All three were a milky to antique white color.
Sorry I don't have any pics. All three were sold to a local jeweler.
I have a question. How potentially valuable are they? I sold all three for $65 six yrs ago!
