I was diving off the Mendocino Coast of California at Glass Beach a couple of weeks ago and came across this large pearl in one of the abalone I harvested. It is quite large at 3 inches long. I would like to have it appraised, but am having trouble finding a place to do so. Also I would like some info on the correct way to polish it. Any info would bew appreciated.

Hi Steve, I found one about 3 weeks ago in Sonoma that looks similar. We're you ever able to find an appraiser?

The abalone pearl is one of very beautiful pearls. Seems like your very good luck you found one and that much big. You have written a great blog.

It is beautiful the way it is. It doesn't need to be polished.
