Filipino-Canadian Owns The World’s Largest Authenticated Natural Pearl Worth $90M
Abraham Reyes, a Filipino-Canadian based in Ontario, Canada took the 27.65 Kilogram Mineral to an appraiser who has confirmed that it was a pearl. The world’s largest authenticated natural pearl! According to Abraham Reyes, his grandfather found the pearl when he bought a giant clam from a fisherman in the Philippines in 1959. Since then, the family has kept it as an heirloom, not realizing that it was actually a 1,000-year-old pearl.
The pearl has been authenticated at the Gemological Institute of America, New York City. They have valued the pearl to be worth as much as $90 million (USD or P4.74 billion Philippine Peso).
