This is a beautiful Genuine Whelk Shell that has very pretty shades of browns in its coloring making it a perfect addition to your artwork or home. Add an air plant to it or it is large enough to put on your bathroom sink and fill with soaps or fragrant potpourri. (any other specimens in photos are available for purchase through the store.)
Measures 10 1/2 inches x 6
All starfish and shells are genuine and natural and therefore have all the beauty and imperfections of their ocean environment.
Fantastic for Beach weddings.......mount in a deep frame to hang.........use as a ring bearers pillow filled with sand at a beach ceremony....a fantastic accent for your beach cottage or party!

I have many more shells, starfish and urchins in purple, pink, white, and green - so if you need more, let me know so I can list them for you.
I care about our environment and the sustainability of the marine life. In the Philippines, local villagers collect the shells and use the meat inside to feed their families. The shell is considered a by-product and is sold once the meat is extracted. I like to support the livelihood of these villagers by buying our shells directly from them. We also buy some shells from the commercial food industry where the shell is also considered a by-product and would otherwise be wasted.
We do not import or sell endangered or protected species.
Please ck out my store to see if there is something in there for you! I am adding new items as I finish them every day :) Janet
