There is some sort of lengend about pearls found in coconuts, but it seems to be little more than a legend. The scientific conditions present to form pearls or similar calcareous nodules are not present in coconuts. We certainly would be interested to see pictures of these items you found though.

Interesting. What do the pearls look like when you remove them from the coconut? What is their texture and hardness like?

Wow, this seems to be a coconut pearl. They are very rare and are a once-in-a-lifetime thing. But there is very little evidence of them being actual pearls and many scientists conclude they are made of aragonite. This is really amazing with heaps of evidence to investigate these further- you should take them to a scientist.

Hello, if you are willing to sell me one (or both) of the coconut stones could you please email me at arcticjellycorn@gmail.com ? Thank you! I would love to buy them at any price. If you have already sold them that's okay but if you have sold them already could you please tell me the town/city you went to to get it and/or the store you got it from? Thank you again!
