Natural cockle shell with brown exterior and white interior from approved sources for use in crafts, decoration and as a shell mulch.
Cockle shells are a very common species found throughout the world. The rounded shells can have a pronounced heart shape and are frequently ribbed. In both Europe and the far East cockle shells are one of the most popular edible shell fish.
Cockle (and mussels) have been immortalised in what has become an Irish Anthem – the story of Molly Malone , a 17 century fishmonger who plied her tade on the streets of Dublin.
In Dublin’s fair city,
where the girls are so pretty,
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone,
As she wheeled her wheel-barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, “Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!”
