Freshwater Pearl

I found the pearl in one of the Freshwater mussel I got from diving in the Rewa River near Nausori Town.

My mother-in-law saw the pearl after cleaning the Fresh water mussel.

I asked my mother-in-law to give it to me to check if it was a small stone but from the first sight I knew that it was a pearl.

I was overwhelmed by the find and I knew that it was a gift from God.

Hi Necani,

That's a beautiful pearl. I love the coloring. Wow, lucky you and you are right, it is a gift from God!

Thanks for sharing and for the photos. I always like to see found pearls in their shells.

What type of mollusk is it?
