Man Kept $100 Million Pearl Under His Bed For Ten Years
Ten years ago, a fisherman found a pearl in a giant clam, so he took it home and placed it under his bed for good luck. Turns out, the pearl was lucky after all, and worth $100 million!
The pearl weighs in at 77lbs, and is 26 inches long and 12 inches wide, making it the biggest pearl in the history of the world! I know you're probably wondering how big the second biggest pearl is and, honestly, it's a little sad compared to this bad boy. Coming in at "only" 14lbs, the previous reigning heavy weight pearl champ, the Pearl of Allah, seems dwarfed in comparison.
If you're reading this and thinking to yourself, "Man, I love pearls! I want a huge pearl like that," then you need to get to the Philippines, because that's where both of these pearls were found.
