These beautiful small shells measure approximately 2.5 inches each and can be found washed up on remote beaches in the Phillipines. They have a lovely caramel colour which varies from batch to batch and a hard back with knobbly bits! Great for our crafters and a customer recently made a beautiful shell mirror with these shells as the border – something a little more unusual and one of our favourites.

Ornamental Carrier Seashell
Aptly named carrier shells ornamenting their dwellings and measuring approx. 5 cms across with stones, other shells and even sponges attached to their shell…. all joining the party! Renowned for their beauty and usually found in and around the Philippines (Western Pacific).Those being “carried” provide a defence for the carrier shell and contribute to a unique and exquisite sculpture. From the family Xenophoridae. We try to exhibit as many seashells as possible in our shop so if you are in striking distance of London or the West Country, our little bricks and mortar shop is full to the rafters and worth a visit. We also try to respond to text messages within a couple of hours on 07711247762.
Spotted Conus Shell
There are certainly many types of cone shell ( we estimate at least 500 species of cone shells ) and these are fine examples from the Condidae family measuring at least 6 cms long. There is such a wide variety of colour patterns and this has made them firm favourites with shell lovers and collectors the world over. Paintings from voyagers and discovers in the 16th century when discovering the New World sometimes feature these seashells. Cone shells are quite heavy and strong and there is an absence of “teeth” in the Conidae family. In their live form some cone shells can inject a virulent poison! Exceptionally these can grow as large as 15 cms! Their range is Indo Pacific in the areas of the Phillipines and Indonesia.
Double sided in assorted colours. These beautiful light pectin scallop shells come in mixed colours. We will evenly sort out a balanced mix of colours for all bulk purchases. If you are choosing one shell than we usually send a lighter coloured seashell unless your order is accompanied with a specific colour request. Great for people who are decorating with seashells or are looking for bulk seashells for sale.
