A man who eats oysterswas quite surprised when something unexpected and precious went from the plate into his mouth. It was a pearl worth thousands of dollars.
Rick Antosh from Edgewater, New Jersey, came to the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Terminal on December 1 to have lunch with a friend and left the house with something out of the ordinary.
"That was the best oystercatcher roast I've ever ordered," Antosh said with a laugh.
At first Antosh did not even know he had found a pearl.
"We were involved in a conversation and suddenly had everything, Whoop, what's that?" He told CBS New York. "I did not bite on it, but I sensed that something was strange, I thought it might be a filling or a tooth."
Antosh examined the pea-shaped treasure and found that it was not round. And something else jumped at him.
"When I saw the black dot, it really intrigued me, what is it? I thought at first, is that something a kitchen utensil broke off?" He said.
The restaurant confirmed that it was a pearl, and adding such a path is extremely rare.
"The one chef in the restaurant said he's been here for 28 years and this is just the second" This has happened, "said Antosh.
Antosh said he had heard that the pearl was probably worth thousands of dollars but she will not let her be judged because he will not sell her, as long as his clever cat does not penetrate it, he expects him to stay and bring him luck.
"The end of the year, you know 'This is a sign for next year,' said Antosh
He said he loved oysters and would eat them more often, hoping to break the odds again and make them one sentence.
The likelihood of a pearl forming in an oyster is estimated at 1
