Dungeness Crab Pearl

Last night I bought a dungeness crab at QFC. When I was eating it tonight, I was surprised to bite into something round and hard. Right away I thought it might be a pearl and figured that maybe the crab had eaten an oyster with a pearl in it.

However, since it looks just like the crab pearls on this website, I guess it must be a crab pearl. My wife does not think that it is very pretty and was not very impressed with my discovery. But I think it would be pretty cool if somebody made a necklace out of a bunch of crab pearls.

I like crab pearls. The End.

I love your idea of making a necklace of crab pearls! It would be a unique & lovely item. I'm interested to see how these pearls hold up over time.
