Filipino-Canadian Discovers Old Family Heirloom is Actually a 1000-Year-Old Giant Pearl Worth $90 Million

A Filipino-Canadian man discovered that an heirloom that has been in his family for decades was actually a 1,000-year-old pearl worth around $90 million (4.74 billion Philippine pesos).

Abraham Reyes, who is based in Ontario, Canada, thought the item was a novel home ornament that resembled a giant tooth. It was only after he brought the mineral to appraisers out of curiosity when he confirmed that it was a pearl.
