Seashells are one of God's most perfect works of art! The seashells we sell here are natural, the shiny ones are polished to show the bright amazing colors underneath the outer surface. Most of our shells are imported from the Philippines. Each shell is unique, we have them pictured in groups of 4 or more as we sell them in our store, so you can see the variety. If you would like pictures of the ACTUAL shell you will be shipped, please feel free to email us and we can send you pictures.
