    Default Tiny Pearl

    I found this tiny pearl inside of an Oyster that I was eating on Saturday 09/01/2012. I bit the oyster and there it was. I really would like to know what kind of pearl it is. The color is off white.

    that is an oyster pearl. The ones from oysters you eat are not nacreous- that shiny iridescent look- they are more like porcelain. Not worth anything except for the great story because it is unusual to find one.
