What you found is an Atlas weapon with high-grade parts... Pearl is one of the descriptors used in some Atlas item's names to imply this. The pearl you hear everyone on here referring to is a pearlescent rarity color that looks teal.

Although I hate referring to the wiki, it's noted in the third bullet point at this link:

http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Atlas#Trivia
- Some Atlas guns come as the pearl edition (example: ZPR300 PEARL MATADOR). These weapons have a white with gray/blackish texture. These weapons are often more powerful and have higher accuracy, but are also much rarer than standard weapons.

Whoops! Muh bad. Gosh, I'm embarrassed now *^.^* lol. I coulda swore the pounder was just a variety of AR... Obviously I was wrong. Guess that's what I get for not poppin' in BL for a while.

As much as I prefer cyan over pearl but if someone says pearl and it's followed by avenger I know what he's talking about. I still think how the whole thing started was when thanatos and other weapons were white but stood above the rest in rarity were dubbed pearlescent. The name kinda just stuck.

Nice find though what are the stats?

Same thing happened to me, first visit to the Armory post-patch. Only pearl weapon I've ever found, and it's a friggin' single-shot Avenger. >:[

Just found a level 69 shield that seems pretty darn good.

PNG2-50AWE Alacritous Fortified Shield
2833 Capacity
364 Recharge

On my Siren that capacity should top out around 56-5700!!!
