Astonshing Temple of Talomeco Pearls found by De Soto

This account sounds like a great backdrop for an Agatha Christie novel...Temple of Talomeco Pearls.



Among great collections of pearls, some writers would place that described by Garcilasso de la Vega as having been found by De Soto and his followers in 1540 in the Temple of Talomeco near the Savannah River in America.

According to Garcilasso, the quantity of pearls there was so great that 300 horses and 900 men would not have sufficed for its transportation, vastly excelling every other if not all other collections in the history of the world.

Unfortunately the accuracy of this account has not been unquestioned.

As told by George Kunz and Charles Stevenson in "The Book of the Pearl".
