A woman in Washington state made a rare find while eating dinner at a restaurant.
Lindsey Hasz was enjoying her dinner with her husband at an Italian restaurant when she bit into something hard in a clam, something that looked like a pearl.
She took it to a local gemologist, who was skeptical at first.
He eventually came to the conclusion that it was a rare quahog purple pearl, worth about $600.
"He thought I was joking," Hasz said. "He thought it looked so round and perfect, that someone was playing a joke on me."
She said she plans on keeping the pearl and maybe making it into a necklace.
