Just got this 18 carat quahog pearl authenticated
Large quahog pearl
I found this while walking around at the beach and thought it was just a really nice pebble but as soon as I held it, I knew the weight felt different from a regular rock. Stopped at two different jewelers and they both said it was a perfect 15 by 15 mm quahog pearl that weighs 18.6 carats. I have no idea what it’s worth or where to sell it. They said I could mail it into a place to get it appraised but it would cost $350. The darker pearl is one I found a while back from clams I was shucking.
