Two Quahog Pearls in One Mouthful - Check this out!

I am a Commercial Fisherman and Aquaculturist. I went diving one day to get some large quahogs, so I could make some stuffies for my family.


As I was eating, I felt crunching...

At first I thought it was probably pieces of the shell, but the possibility it was a broken pearl lingered in my head. Either way i figured it would be a good idea to take it out of my mouth and not swallow it.

When I looked in my hand, low and behold, 2 Quahog Pearls!

Wow, I bet you were pleasantly surprised! Anyone would be. Neat that you dove for them yourself. Most of us need to purchase quahogs at a grocery store, but they are a seasonal item, at least in my area, so not always available.

Thanks for sharing and the photos. What are you going to do with them? They'd make a neat piece of jewelry.

If you wish to list them for sale on my site see: How to submit a pearl for sale.
