Dear Kari,

I have found a pearl weighing 5.5kg (12lbs 2oz) which I think it was from a Giant Clam (Tridacna Gigas) - this information about giant clam pearl I got from your website and some others in a little research I made from the internet.

I was wondering if you could assist me in verifying this finding and to also understand the potential market value of this large pearl.

Grateful if you could kindly inform us to how we could potential arrangement for the verification and valuation of the pearl.

Thank you and we look forward to your assistance.

Best regards,


Attached are photos of the pearl for your perusal.
