There was a legend regarding this fisher girl. It was said that the fisher girl was a beautiful fairy maiden who was attracted by the picturesque scenery of Xianglu Bay. Later she fell in love with a young fisherman and therefore she disguised herself as a fisher girl. Anyway, the young fisherman believed some fabricated rumor of a bad guy and asked for the bracelet that worn on the hand of the fisher girl. Although the girl explained to the young fisherman that she would die straight even if she removes either one of the bracelet, he did not believe her words. As a result, she removed a bracelet, presented to the young fisherman and died. The death of the girl had shocked the young fisherman and he cried day and night. His great sorrow had touched Jiuzhou Elder, an immortal who decided to lend a hand to them. Finally the girl was resuscitated and they offered this huge previous pearl to the Elder during their marriage ceremony as a token of their appreciation for his kindness.
