    Some clams DO produce pearls. It could be said it is much less often, but to say they do not is incorrect.

    To add on to that, the largest pearl in the world, the pearl of Lao Tzu, was found in a giant clam.

    More than the shell description, a picture of each one would’ve been helpful. Had to search another site to find those.

    Last name is Oyster. I think that clustered oysters in South Carolina are the best in the world.

    Please check your facts clams can produce a pearl it is very different from an oyster pearl where it is made from fibers instead of nacre so most clam pearls have what they call a fire ring or a sun burst look to them
