Shell information:

Cowrie shells do vary in size, shape and color, they are sliced in half by human hands, we cannot add holes or make the slits larger or smaller they are sold as is.
In order to offer the shells at the lowest price possible, we are unable to pick or sort through them for you they come as a mixture of sizes only.
Shells are pre-washed clean but not polished or waxed, just natural finishing.
It is possible that you may come across the odd shell that is unusable or misshapen, but to compensate we always add a few extra to orders, so please carefully count the number of shells you receive before contacting us.
Cowrie shells vary between batches, but in the 20 years we have been selling them these shells are very consistent and any variation will be slight.

If you need bulk cowrie shells we offer kilo bags of mixed sizes including small, medium and large.
