The World’s Largest Pearl Was Just Found in the Philippines

0

The pearl was found 10 years ago by a fisherman who was unaware of its value and kept it as a good luck charm, Palawan official Aileen Amurao said.

“We were amazed when he brought it to us,” she told local media.

Officials are awaiting confirmation from gemologists that the find is indeed the world’s largest pearl.

The pearl is 1ft (30.5cm) wide and 2.2ft long and, if confirmed, will easily beat the current record holder, the Pearl of Lao Tzu, which weighs 6.4kg.
