THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What are the odds of finding a pearl?
The next time you decide to go out pearl hunting keep
in mind that you'll need to shuck a lot of oysters before you find that pearl.
The odds that an oyster will hold a pearl are 1 in
12,000 and if you are an expert shucker it should take you about
17 hours of non-stop shucking.
Now if you are feeling really lucky you can try Quahog clams which produce
an incredibly rare purple pearl.
The odds of finding the rare purple pearl in a Quahog clam is 1 in 100,000
and only 1 in 20 are gem quality.
