While enjoying a rare, king crab leg dinner on Friday past, 4/18/08, something rolled around my plate.

It certainly looks like a pearl.
I am not certain of the process but the results are shown below.

Hi Leslie,

Thanks for sharing your find and photo. It's been very interesting to read about these crab leg "pearls". And even if they aren't technically pearls they certainly are a fascinating phenomenon.
