I found the "King of Quahog Pearls"
17mm Purple Quahog Pearl
My family and I have been in the Seafood retail business most of our lives. In 2005, I was shucking a bushel of quahogs from a new supplier when my knife got caught on something in the shell. Low and behold it was an egg-shaped purple wampum pearl! It is 25.675ct, 17mm & 4.54 grams! It has 3 shades of purple, quite impressive! Now what do I do with it?
