Leopard Print Pica Shell
Our Leopard Print Pica Shell is an exquisitely patterned shell featuring a black and white pattern similar to leopard print with hints of olive green showing throughout. Incredibly, these breathtaking shells are naturally coloured this way and their polished finish simply showcases their amazing pattern. Our pica shells have had the top coloured layer stripped away in a spiral pattern to reveal the luminescent mother-of-pearl hidden underneath. Featuring grooves carved into the mother-of-pearl swirls really helps capture the light and reflect the rainbow effect. A beautiful shell to add to your collection and perfect for any type of beach, coastal or Hampton's styling.
Approx. Size: 7 x 7 x 5 cm however as these shells are a natural product, they will range in sizes, colours and markings.
Mindful Sourcing of Shells and Marine Life:
We support the company that supports the oceans. My supplier collects shells that are abundant, commercial-grade shells. The shells we sell have originally been collected for food or are the by-product of licensed fishing and aquaculture operations. This means we get to share and enjoy shells that would otherwise be waste.
I source my shells from a company that are mindful of their overseas harvesters and use fair trade practices. They have voluntarily committed to an industry Stewardship Action Plan to adapt responsibly to working in a marine environment and also contribute to scientific research projects and participate in government initiatives. In November 2008, the fishery was presented internationally as an example of the world’s best practice in ecologically sustainable fisheries management.
