Alan Reinke's sons went out abalone diving recently. The ocean has been calm with good visibility and they got their limits. In one of the largest abalones they found two pearls.
These pearls can be polished up and used in jewelry. I think one would make a great good luck charm. These pearls can't be legally sold.
I have other abalone success stories to share with you soon. Abalone diving has been epic on the Mendonoma Coast!
Thanks to Alan for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
