I had the good fortune to find a fossilized oyster today. The top and bottom shells were intact and the center was hollow. No pearl was inside but it made me curious. Has a pearl ever been found with a fossilized oyster shell?

TEXT: Fossil Pearls for sale. 29 natural fossil pearls 75,000.00 USD or best offer, ranging in size from 6.40 mm to 17.52 mm. These pearls are very rare. One of a kind pearl collection and the largest collection in the world for this epoch from this shell which is extinct. After extensive research world wide as far we know it is the only collection of pearls like it in the world. From the perna conradiana fossil shell which is extinct from the Pliocene epoch from Florida. It has taken us 13 years to collect this many pearls while fossil shell collecting.
