Just last month a fisherman from the Philippines had told the world he had been keeping a big secret for ten years. he had discovered a gigantic pearl whilst diving in the ocean ten years ago. He had hidden it under his bed until August this year, after a house fire took place, in the man’s home. He had secretly kept something worth over 100 million under his bed and no one knew except for his family. Declaring his find to authorities it far out-passed the 2nd biggest Pearl in the World which weighs WOW! Lao Tzu, which was 6.4 kilograms.
The man handed over the pearl after recently having to “change residency frequently”, Puerto Princesa City tourism officer Aileen Cynthia Amurao told local media.
“We were amazed when he brought it to us,” she said.
Philippine officials believe the pearl — 61cm wide and 30cm long — is the biggest of its kind.
Gemologists have been asked to help examine and authenticate the find, which is expected to be worth $130 million.
If confirmed as the world’s largest, it will easily beat the current record holder — the pearl of Lao Tzu, which was 6.4 kilograms.
