Hello I've had this pearl since the 90s when my grandmother found it while cleaning quahogs for chowder. I'm not sure if it's worth a lot and would like to know a ballpark number on it if this community is familiar. I am wanting to ultimately sell it and give the proceeds to my grandmother who is having a rough time financially after her husband passed away. I live in Ohio currently and cannot find a reputable source for valuation. The pearl is darker purple but with a lighter lavender glow if that makes sense. It's very hard to take macro shots with my cell phone and hard to show the true color. I put the dime in for perspective. It's the shape of a skittle with one side being a little rounder and more eye pleasing and the other side being a little flat with a small divot (button type?) If you would like any more pictures please just let me know. Thank you for checking out my first post here.
