Wild Red Abalone Pearl

(YouTube Video)




This is a close to perfectly formed Wild Red Abalone Pearl found off the coast of Northern California. It is over 4 inches long, and 2-1/4 inches wide at its widest point, and this pearl is slightly less than 300 carats. Abalone pearls are very rare - possibly 1 out of 1.5 million may possess a small pearl, but something of this size would definitely qualify as a unique find. Though typical clam pearls are round, however, Abalone pearls are known to have a horn shaped figure. This pearl possesses the beautiful unique greenish blue luster common to the Northern California Abalones.

Hi, This is a public YouTube video so I don't know the lighting that was used and no, it is not my pearl. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the comment.

What kind of lighting was used to video the pearl and what is the value of this pearl. Is it yours?
