  • Found a little pearl in Maine

    Hi! Last weekend I was at our families cabin on a little island in Maine. (Yarmouth Maine to be specific). I was catching crabs with my son and I found a single mussel and cracked it open to feed to the crabs. Inside was this little tiny pearl. I just wanted to see if anyone could tell me anything about it. Based on the size, I'm sure it's worthless, but I will probably have it set into my moms "mothers ring" with me and my siblings birth stones. The day before I found this, we had just laid my mom to rest at sea about 3 miles from where I found it, so even with no monetary value, it is still sentimental to me. Thank you!

    If you key in "Maine mussels", then hit "images" on Google, you could probably identify what species of mussel it came from. In other words, I don't know anything about it.

    But what a special treasure, especially considering the circumstances of the find!
