All of our Seashells are 100% Genuine, from sustainable and ethical sources, with a Certificate of Authenticity
Natural shells of the conch family with a beautiful orange / pink opening. Sourced from approved Indo-Pacific sources for crafts, jewellery and interior/exterior decoration.
True conch species are salt water gastropods which vary in size from small to very large.
Most species live on warm sandy bottoms in tropical waters in Indo-Pacific Oceans, and many are economically important as food sources.
In Mayan art large conches were used as paint and ink holders for scribes, as bugles and hand weapons.ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT specimen you will receive. The specimen has been carefully hand selected and photographed. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device. Once this specimen is sold, we will update this listing with new similar selected item, with a new photo and dimensions.
