Pearl from clam value


#1

A friend asked if a “Pearl” from a clam has any value. I don’t have a
clue. Does anyone know or able to give me a hint of who to ask? The
Pearl is 15 mm wide X 9.8 mm high with a purple hue. E-mail me off
line for pictures.

Thanks in advance, Richard

I’m sure they had to have seen the news recently about the purple
pearl found in the clam that is valued at $25k. :slight_smile:

Richard, oddly enough I just read about a patron of a restaurant
finding a pearl in one of his clams, with a purple hue I might add,
and it was worth a bundle. I wish I could remember where I read it
(it could have been “The Week” magazine, or possibly the Wall Street
Journal)! I suggest you take it to someone reputable to place a
value. Don’t get your hopes up but it’s definitely worth checking
into!
