I found a quahog pearl
Dark Purple Quahog Pearl
I live in Westerly RI and in the summer my oldest daughter loves to dig for quahogs. She's always stopping over after her day with a bunch for me to make chowder with. Never before had I found a pearl before until yesterday. My husband spotted this darkish colored thing in one of the clams and before he threw it away I had a look. It's gotta be a pearl I thought. It's got a flat bottom and it don't see any cracks it it, even though it was boiling for some time. I was wondering if it was worth anything. I'd like to sell it if so.
