|Examine||Maybe there are pearls inside?|
An oyster may or may not contain pearls when you open it. An opened oyster becomes either an oyster pearl, oyster pearls or an empty oyster. Usually a non-empty oyster contains only 1 pearl, although on rare occasions they can contain 3 pearls. Pearls of any kind are useful in the Fletching skill, as at level 41 they can be used to make pearl bolt tips with the help of a chisel.
Using a chisel on one oyster pearl will create 6 pearl bolt tips, while using a chisel on the multiple oyster pearls will create 24 Pearl bolt tips.
In earlier days of RuneScape, the chance of getting pearls from oysters was low. This was increased with the introduction of gem-tipped bolts. Oysters also respawn north-east of Rellekka.
