The Quahog Pearl

Quahog Pearl on Quarter
2 years ago my wife and I bought a dozen quahogs. While she was eating one she bit into what she thought was a piece of a shell. She took it out of her mouth after almost breaking a tooth and looked at it.
She went to the sink to clean it and said, "This looks like a pearl!" We cleaned it more and it is indeed a pearl.
I have attached a pic and have thought of having a ring or something made from it. I know it's rare but the story is something we will remember.
