Don Gonzales from the Philippines uploading a post on to the Internet Stones.COM Media facebook page on March 23, 2013, reports of the discovery of an extraordinarily large non-nacreous pearl weighing 25kg from the giant clam Tridacna gigas, found in the waters off the coast of Philippines. Several such discoveries of massive calcareous pearls from the giant clam have been reported before from the waters of the South China Sea off the coast of Philippines, particularly from the Island of Palawan. One such famous pearl is the "Pearl of Allah" weighing 6.1kg, believed to be one of the largest "pearls" in the world, and discovered in 1934.
This is what Don Gonzalez has to say about this latest discovery :-
We are in possession of a "non-nacreous pearl" (as shown in the attached images) weighing approximately 25kg, including the weight of one valve of the clam. It is similar to the "Pearl of Allah, also known as the Pearl of Lao Tzu or the Pearl of Lao Tse".
Can you please gentlemen assist us on how we can evaluate and sell this pearl to a prospective customer.
