Found this little gem last night. Hard as a rock. I thought I had bit into a rock and spit out this little curiosity.

It's a great macro shot, excellent for a first time poster. Welcome to P-G.

Nifty little pearl you have there. It has an interesting grey>gold>brown hue and a nice teardrop shape.

Do you know what species this came from? Was it raw when you found it?

I'll be headed to the farm and unable to respond for a few days, but would like to see a few more pics.

I don't know what type of clam it is. Whatever it is that they sell at the markets here in Taiwan.
