Feb 1st, 2017: Maxi Pearl

This is the biggest natural pearl from a clam ever found, that we know of.
A bigger one might have been found by Grog and Shag, or be hidden in a despotís evil lair?
At around 30cm(11.8in) wide by 67cm(26.4in) long, and 34kg(75lb), itís heavier and larger than the current record holding Pearl of Lao Tzu, also known as the Pearl of Allah, by over five times.



Seems this unnamed (probably one of Slangís relatives) fisherman from the Puerto Princesca, Philippines, caught his anchor on something in a storm. When it blew over, it looked like it was a shell so he swam down to retrieve the anchor, and also brought the shell up. I wonder what the clam with pearl weighed? He kept the pearl under his bed as a good luck charmÖ for ten years.

Hmm, I wonder if everyone else on the boat died suddenly/tragically during that period?

A fire in his shack caused him to drag it out and people told him itís valuable.
The Pearl of Lao Tzu, also from the Palawan sea, weighs 6.4kg(14lb) is worth US$35 million. So they estimate this pearl is worth US$100 million.

OK, the biggest, rarest, a prestigious possession, so itíll bring big bucks
BUT, itís really not ďprettyĒ in the tradition jewel sense, itís too big to be worn, too valuable to be a door stop or even left unguarded. I suppose it would look nice in an aquarium for a fish named Wanda. Or run a lottery to guess how long it would take to dissolve in vinegar.

Gross.

I mean, cool in theory, but... gross.

Ideal to cast before a million pig hog farm.

Is it just me or does that look like a pile of nippley breasts?

Maybe one of those multi-breasted alien girls you see in fantasy stories got gulped by a giant clam, and pearlized.
