    WASHINGTON BOROUGH, N.J. — Two weeks after a Florida man found a rare pearl in his seafood, it's happened again — this time to a New Jersey man who was eating fried oysters.

    Mike McHenry thought he had chomped down on a piece of shell and instead spit out a pea-sized pearl.

    "You might break your teeth on it if you crunch down too hard," the 60-year-old Washington Township man said of his discovery at Russo's Ristorante in Washington Borough.
    Story continues below

    McHenry's find was rare, according to Gef Flimlin, a marine extension agent with Rutgers Cooperative Extension, who said 95 percent of pearls are cultured for production, unlike the naturally formed pearl McHenry found.

    I don't care for clams, but I'll eat all the oysters I can to get a pearl... (Clams != oysters)

    At least it would help pay for any dental work he'd need were he to have bitten down a little too hard.
