Woman shocked after finding a handful of pearls inside a clam

Pearls are most frequently found in oysters, and less frequently in clams and mussels. This fortuitous woman hit the jackpot when she opened up this clam and found a handful of pearls inside.

Pearls are the only gemstone in the world that come from living animals and are a precious jewelry to many women. Perhaps that is because no two pearls are exactly alike. They can also range in color from purple, pink, and black, to white and ivory, or even gold. Each and every pearl is unique and all have imperfections.

Those imperfections help to determine their monetary value, and some are extremely expensive once they hit the jewelry market. Pearls have been harvested for thousands of years. In fact, Jacques Cartier, world renowned jeweler, purchased his 5th Avenue store in 1916 with two pearl necklaces!
