Set of 5 Trochus Shells
These cute little shells are completely natural and unpolished. They range in colours from aqua and jade green with flecks of rusty brown along with glimpses of mother-of-pearl shining through. Underneath these shells is a delicate raspberry red speckled pattern. Every single shell is different and unique and this little collection of 5 will give you a wonderful array of colours, sizes and patterns.
Dimensions: Approx 4-6cm in diameter.
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.
