Surely the quintessential shell! This polished lion's paw scallop - Latin name nodipecten nodosus - comes in shades of coral and orange on the outside, with bands of purple, pink and white inside.

 

This is the largest scallop of the Western-Atlantic Ocean and this example has a thick shell smoothed by polishing.

 

This shell measures 14cm long by 13.5cm across. With large, specimen shells such as this one you will receive the actual shell photographed.

  • All the shells we sell in our shop are real and they are from abundant and sustainable sources. The vast majority of these shells are a by product of the food industry, even the really tiny ones (used to make soups!).

    Our suppliers are a socially responsible organisation in the Philippines, paying a fair daily wage, who do not export any current endangered species of any sort. We do not stock items taken solely for decorative purposes such as seahorses, puffer fish, etc.

    All the shells are natural; they’ve just been cleaned and, in some cases, polished and occasionally carved or acid-etched. Isn’t nature amazing!
