    The real question is value. People have been mislead that these things can be sold for a lot of money. We know of no instance of someone making a lot of money on them. Do you?

    There was a time several years ago that any large freshwater cultured pearls were a big deal because they were so large, so it's possible they rated a better clasp at the time. :)

    The thing that boggles my mind is why anyone would think they could sell chunks of shell overgrowth. What conceivable value could they have in anyone's eyes? Saltwater doorstops?!!

    Apparently, a chemist in Manila did a TV show about these concretions, claiming they were pearls and that they were very valuable. There is no stopping the mayhem. Sigh.

    It's important to understand that the pearls are low quality, so even if they turn out to be natural, they won't be worth much more than the laboratory report. The claim that they are old is...

    You need an experienced gemmological laboratory to verify whether the pearls are natural. They don't look very old.

    Everyone is right. The little tiny wrinkles are typical of akoya and give away that they are not top grade, but they are pretty.
