Went to a hibachi bar! Oysters on the half shell. husband bit into an pearl!!

Is this good luck? It's about the size of a bb gun pellet, white with an kinda orange stripe around it, very pale. Is this a good omen? Is it worth anything?

Dear Miracle to be found,

Thank you for sharing your beautiful miracle story of finding a pearl and the meaning and memories it has and will continue to have as you wear it on a necklace. Yes, please do send photos!

I love hearing about finding pearls and about the joy and impressions they give. Natural pearls are special. I'm glad you plan on cherishing yours. You'll be wearing a memory.

God bless you on your search for a silver cage. I appreciate you taking the time to write.

Found a 6mm almost perfectly round Pearl at the Sanitary Resturant in Morehead City NC.
by: A Miracle to be found

To begin this story it goes back a few months ago. My mother became very, sick back in January of 2012 with her lungs and spent 15 weeks in the hospital from January 12th to June 26th 2012 when the Lord took her home that night. My mother had asked my husband to do her eulogy and he agreed to do so for her. Anyway one of my mothers short visits home she had my husband and I go buy her raw oysters pecks at a time until finally we bought her a bushel for Mothers Day. Mom would eat nothing but oysters for dinner and at 3am she would wake and steam more. My husband told my mother that he would never eat another oyster ever especially steamed my moms favorite way to eat them. On occasions he would eat them fried but very rarely. On June 26th the Lord took my mother home to be with him after many months of battling COPD and pneumonia among other health issues. We laid my mothers shell to rest on June 30th and family members from all over came and after all was done wanted to go to a restaurant on the waterfront in Morehead City NC to eat and fellowship together. I ate grilled chicken since I'm highly allergic to shellfish and my husband in memory of my mother ordered fried shrimp and oysters. When his plate came they had given him shrimp and scollops so it was sent back and his order made correct. I had to say my good byes to family and friends that had come to pay their respects to my mother and many hugs and tears later all had left except for our close friends. I walked back to our table where my husband approached me and said I have something for you I was like what is it. He asked me to hold out my hand and lovingly dropped a beautiful pearl into my hand. I started to cry because I knew then that my mother had sent him a sign that he had done a wonderful job with her eulogy. She always had to have the last word and did so this time in a loving way. It was found in his next to last fried oyster. We are looking for a very special sterling silver pearl cage to place it in where I will wear it proudly around my neck until my time comes to go be with our maker. Thank You for the great information I received from your web site. will send a picture in near future when necklace is complete. Thank You again!!!

Happy Day!
by: Kari

Hi Karen,

Happy day to find a pearl! Although pearls from edible oysters usually do not have the high value of other oysters, they are still natural pearls and a treasure. Usually they make a great keepsake and yes, I suppose they are a sign of good things...after all, hey, you found a pearl! That doesn't happen every day to everyone.

Thanks for sharing. I'd love to see a photo of your pearl or what you decide to do with it.

God bless!
