Tridacna pearls are very rare, organic gems produced by the largest living bivalve mollusk from the Cardiidae family, known as the Tridacna gigas or Giant Clam. Tridacna clams can live for up to 100 years, can grow as large as 4 feet across and weigh up to 440 pounds. Natural Tridacna pearls are known for their porcelain-like white color, sometimes with beautiful flame patterning. Tridacna clams can be found in the shallow waters of the Indo-Pacific, inhabiting coral reefs. Prior to 2016, the largest pearl in history was a Tridacna pearl known as "The Pearl of Allah". The Pearl of Allah was discovered in 1934 off the Philippines' coastline. It measures 9.4 inches long, weighs approximately 14 pounds, and was valued by the San Francisco Gem Laboratory at $40,000,000.00! The record was broken in 2016 by another Tridacna pearl found in the Philippines. This massive pearl measures over 2 feet long by 1 foot wide and weighs approximately 75 pounds!
