Oyster Pearl During Mardi Gras

Oyster Pearl During Mardi Gras

My family and friends came down for Mardi Gras and of course went for oysters while they were here. I got a dozen of course and I was literally half finished eating them. I was chewing and noticed that I had bitten something hard. I took it out of my mouth to look and see what it was and I couldn't believe it was a pearl. I knew pearls came from oysters but I haven't known anyone to actually find one while eating them. I was so excited about it, I told my family and friends about it, even told the waiter. Lol, I was soooo excited so I stared googling the meaning of finding a pearl and stats on how common it is to find one etc. It's not very big in size at all but I feel so pleasured to have experienced this in my lifetime. I've decided to get a ring made with it and I would like to know the value of it but I won't sell it. It's my special piece given to me by God :)
