these where found on a belgium beach what do you guys think they are ?
Is is this a game of some sorts? I can't tell - solidified oil globules?
Me, amateur, can't tell. Will let the experts weigh in on this one.
Hard to say for sure from two pics, but these appear as scallop pearls.
all these pearls are from the same location as the previous this guy really turned the whole beach up side down after the first time
still no idea what they can be
any ideas ?
some loose ones
and a other bouton one this is the top side
Conjoined, multinuclear and conglomerate. (pearls within pearls)
I see this in mussels often.
Thanks for the update, very interesting.
SO MANY PEARLS, SO LITTLE TIME----
Interesting - and ugly...
the founder is still searching for more options does anyone here know who has the knowledge of both fossil and recent pearls to see where this one is from the european labs so far don't have idea s ( they do say its a pearl haha thats how far i was also )
karin very ugly indeed haha only knowing that they are found 3 hours from my house in 2 weeks time makes it very interesting
because what shell is working so hard on pearls over here and if there here are they also in denmark maybe ? i have found weird things on the beach in denmark when i lived there no pearls so far haha
To me, there are no ugly pearls. Each and every natural pearl has a story to tell of how it was created.
In fact, I'm very intrigued how a pearl transforms from gonadal to extrapallial to become conjoined.
The first few images show the pearl's crystalline structure, thus not fossil.
Again, probably from mussels, although I'm not certain about the singles.
I see your point, Dave. I guess I'm too much of a consumer - pearlwise - to appriciate the finer points
Daniel, I didn't know you'd lived in Denmark. Mostly I think you need to be on the west coast of Denmark to find anything but trash
