Purple Pearl Question
by Ann Sinclair
Someone we know found a pearl way out on Long Island while digging for clams many, many years ago.
After learning about the purple pearl found in Florida we thought we'd see if you could answer a question or two.
Found in a cherrystone the pearl is of a light purple color. The pearl does not look completely round but is large and it looks like it sits in a puddle.
Are all pearls found in clams round? Are they loose in the clam shell? Could this pearl be of any value?
Please respond if you can answer.
