Toni Elliot was dining at the Puckett's Boat House in Franklin when she ordered oysters.
Elliot’s server told ABC: "She put an oyster in her mouth... and pulled out a pearl…she ended up pulling 50 pearls out of this oyster”
Oysters are formed when some unnatural gets inside the oyster, as a way of protecting itself the mollusk cover the material in nacre - the same material that makes its shell. This unnatural material inside the oyster is then covered in layers of the nacre forming a pearl.
It’s a rare occurrence and even rarer to find it’s happened nearly 50 times in one oyster.
Just imagine if there’s been pearls inside this massive oyster discovered in Denmark.
