Quahog Pearl Found in Houghton's Pond Picnic Trash
by Michael Burke
( MA, USA)
25 carat quahog pearl
I found this pearl while at work. It was found among dozens of discarded eaten and uneaten Quahogs. I was picking up trash overflowing from a garbage can when I looked down and saw it. It weighs 5 Grams and seems perfectly round.
