I was eating dinner at a wonderful restaurant called "Goatfeathers" in Columbia, SC just last night, February 17, 2012. We were enjoying oyster/spinach pizza when I bit down on something hard. After feeling that it was round (and swallowing my food) I pulled this breathtaking white pearl. The owner of the restaurant was sitting at my table & witnessed the entire event. He was more excited than I was. He said the oysters were from Louisiana. He called it a Katrina oyster. As a child, he shucked oysters with his dad. He was very impressed with the size, quality and weight. This little precious is heavy! How exciting!

Size: .27 grams
.22 - .25 diameter
