Longspine Murex Indivia
Ever popular longspine murex sea shells are quite often colourful but our murex indivia shells are just as renowned for their ornate structure and spiney body which does make them prickly to touch – still, that should keep them from disappearing too frequently from your decorative seashell display. We think these longspine murexes display best with pearlised trochas and white pointer starfish as the black and white body of these shells works with neutral colours for seashell decor. So if you are thinking of decorating with seashells this shell should be on your list.

Ornamental Carrier Seashell
Aptly named carrier shells ornamenting their dwellings and measuring approx. 6 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 Phillipines ( 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.
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.

Turbo Silvermouth Shells
These Turbo Silvermouth shells are the pearlised versions of our other turbos so silvery in colour and with that swirl our turbo shells all seem to have. We also have these in larger sizes, but the 5 to 8 cms are the most popular for ocean themed decor and work nicely in displays with our pearlised trochas. If ordering in quantity please email us for a price quotation. Please note that with all our seashells, colourings and shapes will vary as they are, of course, a natural product. These silvermouths however are fairly regular in style and appearance. A popular one for wedding decor again this year.
