2 Inch Abalone Horn Pearl

I was abalone diving last year. I had one abalone, when I suffered a massive stroke. My 82 yr old dad assisted me, called 911, and one yr later I am a recovering stroke victim.

I couldn't get myself to eat the abalone from that horrific day, so I told my dad to enjoy.

When he cleaned the abalone he found a huge pearl that measures about 2" and shaped like a tooth. He gave it to me the other day.

Glad you are still here!

Hello DJT, I'm glad you are still here one year later to tell us about your 2" abalone pearl. I'd love to see a photo of it. Yes, that must have been a traumatic day for you for sure! It's a good thing you weren't diving alone and your father could help you. Now, you have a prize for all the effort you put into diving that day. Good for you. I hope you can thoroughly enjoy that pearl. I have yet to taste abalone meat...some day I'll give it a try. If you get around to taking a closeup photo of your pearl I can easily add it to your page for you. Email it to me at: karipearls(AT)gmail(DOT)com. Thank you for sharing, DJT. I love hearing about natural pearls and am now selling natural pearl jewelry made from Persian Gulf pearls. As much as I appreciate cultured pearls and all the efforts that go into growing them...to me there's nothing quite like a non-cultured pearl. God bless and again...I'm glad you are still with us!
