Natural Abalone Pearls Found While Diving
Natural Abalone Pearls
Early in 2007 I went abalone diving around Fort Bragg, California, with some friends. I have been doing it for years and have always heard about the pearls but had never found one. Then it happened, I was amazed at how the color and shine shot out at me when I popped it out of the shell. I think it is probably gem quality because the color is brilliant and the texture is so smooth. But what do I know I'm not an expert. Anyway it is a nice reminder of how much fun I had on that abalone trip.
