You’ll never believe what this fisherman kept secret for a decade!

A fisherman made an amazing discovery roughly ten years ago but rather than show it to the world, he secreted it away, not knowing it was worth up to $100 million

An unnamed fisherman discovered a two-foot-long pearl weighing 34 kg (nearly 75 pounds).

He didn’t know what it was but liked it and decided to keep it under his bed as a good luck charm.

The giant pearl is five times larger than the previous record and was left beneath the bed until a fire forced the fisherman to move his valuables to a new home.

When he revealed the pearl to a shocked local tourism officer in Puerto Princesca, the officer informed the fisherman of the enormous gem he discovered.

The pearl is 1-foot-wide by 2.2-feet-long.

The giant pearl weighs 34 kg (74.5 pounds) and can be worth up to $100 million (Aileen Cynthia Amurao/SWNS).

Tourism officer Aileen Cynthia Amurao shared: “The fisherman threw the anchor down and it got stuck on a rock during a storm. He noticed that it was lodged on a shell and swam down to pull up the anchor, and also brought the shell with him.

“This was a decade ago and he kept it at home. He didn’t know how much it was worth and kept it tucked away at home as a simple good luck charm. We were amazed when he brought it to us. We now need help from gemologists to fully certify it.

“We’re waiting for authentication from [the] Gemologist Institute and other international authorities. But we believe Puerto Princesca is likely earn [sic] another prestigious title and a record breaker for having the world’s biggest natural giant pearl from a giant clam.

“We will keep this here in the Philippines and I hope it will bring more tourists to the city.”

The pearl was placed on display for tourists on Monday and remains available for viewing.
