This listing is for two shell beads. This bead or pendant is carved shell from Africa. Beautiful off-white color! Each is about 2.5" long and 1.5" to 2.0" wide. The shell is drilled through, top to bottom. Can be beaded on a necklace horizontally or used as a pendant vertically. The makers commonly call these "hippo teeth" since they are carved to look like a large tooth!
