Still growing?
by: Kari

Hi Sean,

What do you mean by "it was still growing?" Was the pearl attached to the shell? If so, it is called a blister pearl and would never separate once attached to the shell. However, I'm not sure that's what you mean.

For sure, yes, you could have found a pearl and I would say it is also rare as any natural pearl is considered rare these days.

Do you have a photo?

Thanks for sharing.
