Found a pearl in my oyster stew!
Growing up we always had oyster stew on Christmas eve. After my parents passed I still made it every year. I'm usually the only one that eats it as my husband doesn't care for it. This year I was not feeling well on Christmas eve or Christmas so I didn't make my stew til the 28th, the night before my birthday. Almost the last bite I felt something hard and when I looked, it was a pearl! I've found a couple tiny things before that may or may not have been pearls, but this one I was sure of. It was larger than any I've seen so I measured it. It is about 6mm and kinda oval in shape. The next day my husband and I went to a craft store and found sone charms with stones in them. We bought one and at home he was able to pry open the cage and remove the stone and put my pearl in! I now have a beautiful pearl necklace with a unique story. Don't care what it may be worth because it means a lot to me.
