Rare purple pearl found by Jersey man

Ed Seitzy could be a rich man thanks to his neighbor. Joey Sitar is a clam digger and he offered Ed a few clams for dinner last Thursday.

Ed found a pearl in one of those clams, but not just any pearl.

He found a purple one. The odds of finding a purple pearl are one in two million making them very valuable.

A Florida couple found a smaller purple pearl last January worth 25-thousand dollars.

Ed must still get his pearl appraised to learn how much it's worth.

He has promised that if the pearl is worth a million dollars, he'll give his boat to Joey.

In the meantime, Joey says taking a closer look at the clams before he gives them away.
