Rare pearl found in plate of clams

A man in Lake Worth, Florida discovered a rare purple pearl in a plate of clams he ordered. George Brock and his wife, Leslie were spending the day at the beach and stopped in at Dave’s Last Resort for lunch. George was half way through eating when he bit down on something hard, the pearl in question.

“Natural pearls are rare and finding one of such a color makes it even more so”, says our staff gemologist at Images. For a $10 lunch his find could be worth thousands, so the Brocks plan to have the pearl appraised and have said they will sell it if it is valuable.
