Ever seen a black cockle pearl?

Ever seen a black cockle pearl?

My wife and I were at Costco today and picked up a few Lbs of Cockles to steam up for dinner. They were delicious. I walked into the kitchen after dinner and noticed one of the little rascals had escaped my plate. Not one to let good food go to waste, I quickly popped it into my mouth and thought I had bitten down on a piece of shell. To my surprise, it was a black pearl. I looked up trying to find the odds of finding one of these and couldn’t even find a picture of one. It’s not big, but a black clam pearl nonetheless. I am guessing this is an extremely rare find. Let me know what you think.

Oh, wow

Hello Barry,
Oh, wow, thanks for sharing. What fun. I love it. I'm not familiar with cockles and didn't know they were available at places like Costco. I have friends who are totally sold on Costco!
Makes me want to go and buy some cockles.
Have fun with your pearl. It would make a nice ring perhaps.
Show us what you do with it.
Thanks again & congratulations on finding a natural pearl!
God bless,
Kari
