Isang Mangingisda ang Biglang Yumaman matapos makakita ng Perlas sa ilalim ng kanyang Kama!


One day, an unidentified fisherman was fishing off the shore of Palawan when he found something and kept it immediately under his bed as a lucky charm.

Little did he know that this thing hiding beneath his bed – an impeccable giant pearl – is a potential world record-breaking pearl.


The 34-kg-pearl found 10 years ago. The fisherman didn’t know that his “lucky charm” would have a whopping value of US $100 million (around PHP 5.05 billion). 

The precious gem measures an astounding 1 foot wide and 2.2 feet long, superseding the current world’s largest peart, the Pearl of Lao Tzu or also known by its moniker, Pearl of Allah, which was also discovered in the same island back in 1934.



When a fire engulfed his wooden home, he was forced to move out. He brought the gem with him and have it checked to the stunned tourism officer in Puerto Princesa.



Tourism officer Aileen Cynthia Amurao shared the story as to how the fisherman discovered the treasure.



“The fisherman threw the anchor down and got it 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.”

Tourism officer Amurao declared that Puerto Princesa, Palawan would still hold the title for having the “mother of all pearls.” She said,



“We now need help from gemologists to fully certify it… But we believe Puerto Princesa is likely to earn another prestigious title and a record breaker for having the world’s biggest natural giant pearl from a giant clam.”




The precious pearl was already exhibited to the public. May this discovery boost the country’s tourism and pride as we continuously seek discoveries that will grant the Philippines pride.

Here some netizens reaction:
