about this shell...
What a Gorgeous shell! Beyond description... but I'll try. First of all this shell has a very pronounced double bump showing a distinct growth line, and the smaller, inner section of the shell (nearest the hinge & wings area) is watermelon colored around the white center! Beyond the growth line the shell flairs out to an extremely wide and perfectly round shape, and is a vivid Tangerine color! There are crisp white stripes on both sides and white flecks throughout the colors. The ribs are beautifully formed with plenty of bumps, the scallop edges are clean with a nice ruffle and the wings are perfectly squared. This is an absolutely beautiful seashell in every way! Its size is slightly larger than 1 1/8 inch.
The buyer has the choice of attachment method, I will pierce the shell and attach a sterling silver or gold filled wire wrap, or will make a "floating pendant" with a North Shore Puka Shell epoxied to the back, unseen. This shell may also be incorporated into any jewelry design of your liking, or it can be bought as-is for your seashell collection.
