Largest natural abalone pearl -
Abalone "horn" pearl set world record
 MENDOCINO, Calif., USA--During
his annual diving trip to Mendocino, Elk Grove resident Peter Truong uncovered a rare abalone pearl measured by the Gemological Institute of America at 718 carats - which sets the new world record for the Largest natural abalone pearl.

The previous Guinness World record for the Largest natural abalone pearl was 469.13 carat baroque abalone pearl found at Salt Point State Park in California; it is owned by Wesley Rankin and named "Big Pink."

   Truong said he's yet to name his pearl, but notes that his family's been calling it a horn because of its shape.

  "The color is so beautiful," he said of its iridescent blue-green color. Abalone pearls cannot be manufactured, notes a letter from the Guinness World Records Limited. Abalone is fairly common, however they rarely produce pearls.

  
 "Apparently they're really popular in Australia and New Zealand," Anthony said. "They are made into jewelry."
