    Definitely looks like a fish! but like a dead skinned fish to me.. I would find great difficulty in setting it because of that fabulous find though, of course! from a pearl-addicted non-consumer point of view

    Set it with a gold hook in its mouth and use it as a pendant. Some fisherman will love it.

    I'm amazed by some designer's ideas with pearls. Sheri's mermaid with pearl bust and bum is one for instance. I bet this could come to life with a fantastic outcome if someone had some imagination with it. How fun that it's natural too.

    It's remarkable how much like a fish that pearl looks. I showed the image to my Uncle, who's favorite pastime is fishing, he thought it was pretty cool too.

    And it seems your pearl is famous! There's a feature in JCK Online about it.

    At present time when many rivers become true bins, It wouldn't be surprising to find a shoe, as pearl's bead...

    ericw, you are so right! Our waterways have become dumping grounds for so many different things.
