PIcture of the pearl next to a screw
It is 11:25 September 3, 2010. We got some fresh Apilachicola Oysters to eat raw. My fiance loves them. He came running in and had bit down on something and I looked at it and it was definitely a pearl. It is about the size of a red hot candy or the size of a bigger nerd candy. It's white. It looks similar to the pictures that I seen on here of the scallop pearls. We are surely surprised by this find. We have been down on our luck lately and this put a smile on our faces to find something that is supposed to be a RARE find. Has anyone else found a pearl out of an oyster shell out of the GULF or Apilachicola oysters before??
