  • 'World's largest' pearl emerges in Philippines

    The man found the 34-kilogramme (75-pound) pearl inside a giant clam that was snagged by his anchor as he waited out a storm at sea, according to local tourism department chief Cynthia Amurao, who is also his aunt. Not knowing it could be worth tens of millions of dollars, he kept the 30-centimetre by 60-centimetre (12-inch by 24-inch) pearl in his thatch hut on the western island of Palawan, tucked under a wooden bed as a good-luck charm, Amurao added. In July, the nephew moved to a new address and took the object to his aunt in a tricycle, asking her to hide it for him, said Amurao, the city tourism officer for Puerto Princesa, the provincial capital.
