Pearlised Trochus Astrea Shell
These spiral shaped shells are a stunning sight to behold. The pearlised finish captures the light beautifully and radiates iridescent pinks, purples, blues and greens. The shell naturally features charming markings within the spiral shape and has a cream base colour with a polished finish making it a perfect specimen shell.
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.
