Blue Cabochon Pearl

Today I made mussel soup from some huge blue mussels that my brother gathered at Bodega Bay Marina in California.
I felt something hard in my mouth and took it out.
There was a gunmetal grey pearl, a bit bigger than a bb, and flat on one side. I think it'll make a nice cabochon. First time I found a saltwater mussel pearl.
