I have Quahog Pearls

by george

I am a commercial fisherman. About 2 weeks ago while digging for steamers I found a quahog(about 6 actually). Well, while I was taking a break I decided to cook the little necks on our stove in the boat. When I opened 1 of them I saw the biggest pearl I have ever seen. I talked to several shuckers since then and they all have said the same thing. That is the biggest that they had ever seen also.

It's always exciting to find natural pearls....my favorites!
