They brought the shells home to be used to decorate their birdhouse and gave the shells to their father to be cleaned. As soon as the father opened the shell, he discovered the rare orange pearl which might be worth about RM1.39 million.

The orange pearls are called Melo pearls and they are rare because they cannot be propagated like other pearls and can only be produced naturally by a species of sea snails called Melo Melo. Well, guess who will be dropping by the beach within 10km of his house in hopes of finding rare pearls?
