Yes, a scallop pearl can be found. I love hearing from folks who find these. These shell shapes are an often used symbol and are included on many coat-of-arms, including Winston Churchill's.
I've eaten this meat in Nova Scotia (from Bay of Fundy) and the Philippines, and saved a few shells...see photo. (Oh....the things I drag home from my travels!)
They live in all of the world's oceans and include more than 350 species. Unlike some other mollusks, these are excellent swimmers and are in fact the only migratory bivalve.
These pearls are often small, but can be plentiful.
I invite you to share your story of finding these pearls. Be sure to include a photo or video.
