Set of Ten Sand Dollars
Sea Dollars otherwise known as Sea Biscuits are a type of sea urchin. These cute little flat urchins, in a lovely natural off-white colour have the pattern of a starfish on the top and a starburst with a couple of holes on the bottom.
Cute as a button these gorgeous little sea dollars are approximately 2 - 3.5cm in diameter and would make a wonderful addition to any seashell collection.
Sold as a set of 10, these adorable sea dollars would look fantastic mixed in with our coloured sea urchins or mixed with our tiny little starfish.
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.
