FISH­ER­MAN STOWS $100 MIL­LION PEARL UN­DER HIS BED

In Touch (USA) - - Omg -

The world’s largest pearl was un­veiled on Aug. 22, and it came with a gem of a story: A Filipino fish­er­man found the 2-foot­long, 75-pound jewel in a gi­ant clam and has been keep­ing it un­der his bed as a good luck charm for 10 years. “He didn’t know what it was worth,” says Puerto Princesa City tourism of­fi­cer Aileen Cyn­thia Mag­gayA­mu­rao, who hopes the $100 mil­lion find will at­tract tourists to the Philip­pines. They’ll come, all right — with div­ing equip­ment!
