A Tennessee woman was enjoying her lunch when she made a shocking but wonderful discovery inside of her food. Toni Elliott was dining at Puckett’s Boat House when she bit into an oyster and found 51 pearls.

“The manager of the restaurant came over and said, ‘I hear you got a pearl in your oyster.’ I said, ‘Well I’m up to ten so far,’” Elliott told WKRN. All 51 pearls came from the same oyster.

The lucky lady says she doesn’t know how much the pearls are worth, but plans to keep them as a souvenir.
