You would be lucky to find one pearl in an oyster, but one diner discovered 50 while dining at a restaurant in Tennessee.
The woman made the discovery on Thursday at Puckett’s Boathouse after
ordering a fried seafood sampler known as the Rusty Bucket, as reported
by The Tennessean.
Jeweller Chuck Gossage told The Tennessean that pearls in edible oysters aren’t gem grade, and it’s impossible to alter their natural surface, which means they remain dull and without lustre. He added that small pearls are often too difficult to drill for stringing.
