Worldwide shells. The question is who would you fear most, an Aborigine with a heavy Australian trumpet shell on his shoulder or an Indian using a left handed whelk as his primary weapon? These left handed whelk shells are rare in India and considered sacred so he probably wouldn’t throw it at you. Not one of ours anyway, as they’re far too good quality. Left handed whelks have been around for 60 million years. They can grow up to a foot in length and had many other uses in the Indian subcontinent, where they’d be eaten and used as lamps too. The Left-handed whelk is a nice shell to look at and an interesting one to talk about too. Can be displayed sideways or standing up. Make ideal window display shells or shell decoration.
