12 Small sized "Large Atlantic Giant Cockle Shells" AKA Van Hyning's cockle You will be sent cockle shells similar to the ones pictured.
I have just returned from a stay at the beach and collected shells for myself and also for you. These cockles were found in northern Florida along side the Gulf of Mexico. They are in their natural state although they have had a light washing. These pictures were taken with the shells wet so that you can see their natural sea colors. This set of 12 shells will range in size from 1 1/2" long and 1 3/4" wide, to just under 1" in length and width. Although not found as intact doubles I will match up 6 pairs of cockles incase you want to display or use them as doubles. See this in pictures 2 and 3. These shells are ideal for shell art, mosaics, beach mobiles, decorations, jewelry, and collections. They would also be excellent to use as a ring dish or if doubled as a small unique gift box. They shine up beautifully with a little lacquer or a dab of oil. These shells are as they were found with slight signs of wear as they have tumbled in the ocean! If you want a shell that I do not have listed let me know and I may have it! Please contact me prior to ordering if you wish to combine an order as the shipping may be less.
