Largest pearl in the world for auction

This is the Arco Valley Pearl. It's a 575-carat pearl that's 3.1 inches long and 800 years old. It's going up for auction at Abu Dhabi's Emirates Palace and on the Internet where it's estimated to get $8 million. It's pretty nice I guess, but it looks super deformed. I thought pearls were supposed to be round. You give this thing to your girlfriend and she's going to throw it back in your face and start crying because you didn't love her enough to buy her a normal looking pearl.
