Extraordinary 18mm Biscuit Pearl- discovered in TN River
by Penny Bell
This extraordinary NATURAL pearl was discovered by my brother in the TN River near the bank of Benton County- Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park where the battle of New Johnsonville was fought. It is a beautifully colored and perfectly formed biscuit pearl- 18.5mm x 12mm- laid upon a penny, can barely see copper on edge. We have an appraisal made by John Latendresse made in 1988 where he declared the value to be $3500 - $7000. We seek the value today, and wish to find a current appraisal, but cannot find anyone who understands what they are seeing! NOT CULTURED!
Can you help us?
