All of our Seashells are 100% Genuine, from sustainable and ethical sources, with a Certificate of Authenticity
Beautiful heavy conch shells with a striking pink or orange/ pink interior lip Our Clients utilise these natural shells for crafts and both interior and exterior decoration.
These shells are particularly suited to introducing young hands to natural shells as they have a smooth surface and no sharp edges or points.
True conch species are salt water snails 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. The animal inside the shell is eaten, either raw like oysters, steamed or stir fried. All parts of the conch meat are edible. However, most people only find the white meat appetising.
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.
