Went clam raking last Wednesday in New Jersey. Raked 399 that day and went home to have some for dinner. Opened a few dozen when this beauty popped out of a medium size clam. Pearl is nicely shaped and sized and has great color. Been clamming for 30 plus years and never found a pearl in a wild clam.

Hello Fred,

Wow, it must have been a thrill, especially if you've been clamming for 30 years! That proves how rare these natural quahog pearls really are.

And you found so many clams....399. That's a huge amount.

I'm happy for you to have found a wonderful rare quahog pearl.

I hope you can make yourself a ring or something so you can enjoy it often.

God bless,
Kari
