    Default Abalone blister pearl all along

    Hi Everyone! Judy here I think I have been in possession of an abalone blister pearl all along and didn't realize it. I came across a find, a piece of an abalone shell with what looked to be a long lump under a crusty yellow skin. So, I buffed out what I could and this is what I came up with. What do you think?

    I've obviously posted incorrectly, a former picture of a freshwater pearl. The first photo is of the back of the piece I am trying to upload. Hold on.Name:  56457861_1270402769773906_3136472104958951424_n.jpg

    Here are some more photos after I have cleaned the pearl some more. I think it looks like a cala lily!

    I have an abalone shell with a blister pearl. The gentleman who gave it to me encouraged me to cut out the pearl and make a piece of jewelry. I like the shell as is (it's huge), so not really sure what to do.
