Rare pearl found inside clam

(WJAR) A 25-year-old Warwick, Rhode Island man said he found a large pink and purple shaded pearl inside a quahog he dug up from Narragansett Bay.

Michael Morales was digging for quahogs last June.

He was having an afternoon clambake, when he found the surprise.

“Decided to go out back and eat. And the next thing you know I crunched down onto a nice little present,” he said.

Since then, Morales has kept the pearl in a safe in his house.

When he’s had time, he’s researched what the pearl may be worth.
