fossil with a pearl in it

by Danette Hopkin

I found this fossil many years ago and put it away. I was cleaning out my storage and ran in to it. I had forgotten that I even had it.

What it looks like is a fossil shell with a pearl sticking out of it. I am sending you a picture can you please let me know what it looks like to you?
Thank You

Hard to tell
by: Kari

Hello Danette,

It is hard to tell from the photo but I would guess that what you suspect could be a possibility. Is there anyone near you who could look at it and give an opinion? There should be lots of "rock hounds" in New Mexico who would have an educated guess at least. I suggest you search for rock clubs in your city and start there. Or maybe even a local jeweler could at least give it an eye-ball examination and give his thoughts.

Please let us know what you find out. Interesting.
