I know nothing of Pearls. This one I’ve had for 20yrs or so. I found it while shucking clams to make Chowder. Recently I was killing time online so I searched Pearl types. From what little info I could find it made me wonder if I may have something here. Any info would be great. I do wish I had better pics though.
Thank you for your time,

Could be a quahog pearl
by: Kari

Hello Bil, If you found it shucking clams, then it most likely would be a quahog pearl. They are very rare and you have a wonderful treasure there. It's not large, but looks round and with a nice dark color. Congratulations on finding what perhaps is a natural pearl! See more here that folks have found: Found: A quahog pearl
