While sitting on the seawall, watching the little wood crabs play among the oysters, I spotted this little treasure. The shell was adhered to the wall. I'm guessing that it is a pearl. It measures 12mm x 15mm. There is a hole in it measuring 1mm x 4mm. He's just another member of my rock and shell collection.

Hello Aleta,

Wow, yes, that certainly does look like a large blister pearl on that oyster.

What a neat find!

Congratulations on that and thanks for sharing it with us.
