    Default Strange fang shaped pearl

    My hubby works at a seafood restaurant and will bring home the occasional pearl. They have reached in color and size but have pretty much be pearl shaped or at least recognizable as a pearl. However he brought this, thing, home with him today and I'm not really sure what it is supposed to be, but wanted to share it somewhere. Took a few pictures with a penny next to it for size reference.

    That's a natural pearl. It's not very fine, unfortunately. But it's a natural pearl in a wing shape. It's a very rare find.

    Thank you. :3 He's pretty proud of it and wants to make it into a necklace pendant.

    I found a fang shaped pearl on the seashore. See image from the link. Is it a real pearl? https://imgur.com/gallery/9lHbZtJ

    That looks to me like a piece of shell that has been worn smooth by the ocean.

    I agree. That one's not a pearl.
