Oysters and clams for dinner! My mom’s love of seafood meant that it was a weekly staple in our house growing up.

That also meant I was often left with the task of shucking oysters, clams, and mussels. As my dad would say, “I don’t want to have to work for my food, I already do that when I go to work!”

Opening up oyster after oyster is a tedious job, but opening one as big as the one in this video looks nearly impossible. The woman then takes a butcher knife to the oyster and struggles to open it. However when she finally does — incredible! The woman is able to removed dozens of tiny, gorgeous white pearls from it.

While there is little context given by whoever uploaded the video, it’s hard to know exactly where the lucky woman was when she discovered one of the ocean’s hidden treasures. Some of the other theories presented by commenters is that the oyster may be from a pearl farm, an eco-friendly place where “farmers” create the conditions for oysters to produce pearls. Either way, I think it’s pretty incredible knowing that one of the finest forms of jewelry is ultimately left up to mother nature herself!
