Fisherman Discovers That His 'Good Luck Charm' Is Worth $100,000,000

Recommended Posts

An unnamed fisherman found a two-foot-long pearl off the Philippine coast and kept it for ten years as a good luck charm.

The 75-pound pearl could possibly be the largest in the world, according to the Daily Mail, and is five times larger than the previous record. 

The fisherman found the pearl in a giant clam ten years ago near Palawan Island in the Philippines. He was out during a storm and attempted to anchor his boat. The anchor got stuck on what he thought was a rock. He decided to swim down and pull up the anchor himself and, to his surprise, found the gem. Unaware of its worth, he kept the pearl in his small, rundown home for years as a good luck charm.

However, after his house burned down and he was left with nothing, the man decided to appraise the pearl to see if he could get a fresh start. He brought his good luck charm to a local tourist office.
