Tip of the hat to Ben L. for this late breaking story in the clamming department.
“Halfway through the $10 dish at Dave’s Last Resort and Raw Bar, Brock bit down on something hard.
He and his wife were astonished to find a rare, iridescent purple pearl among the shellfish.
And they are hoping to cash in on their good luck after experts suggested the find could be worth thousands.”
Purple quahog pearls are a new one for me — guess that’s why they are so valuable.
