The Shell Lady likes to keep things fresh so look what we have coming to our store soon: Sliced Natural Tiger-Striped Nautilus Shells as well as Sliced Pearl Nautilus Shells. We’ll be adding a variety of sizes and the shells will be available as a half, 2 halves, or even just a center cut nautilus.
Beginning with a large circular opening, a Tiger-Striped Nautilus Shell spirals into a tight ball, its whorl keeping to a smooth plane and not extending outward on either side. A creamy, light chocolate coloration adorns the entire shell, except where the tiger stripes occur. Each narrow segment of the spiral displays a dark orange stripe on one edge of the segment, with the stripe thicker at the segment’s hump and narrowing down toward the interior of the spiral.
The Pearl Nautilus Shell is coiled and pressure resistant, imploding at a depth of about 800 metres. The nautilus shell is composed of two layers: a matte white outer layer, and a striking white iridescent inner layer. The innermost portion of the shell is a pearlescent blue-gray.
We’ll be adding a variety of sizes soon and the shells will be available as a half, 2 halves, or even just a center cut nautilus! Our center cut shells will come with the center slice alone or all three pieces for you to display. What will you create? How would you display?
We set a goal in July to have 3,000 ‘fans’ on our Facebook page. We are slowly reaching that goal & need your help to make it a reality! You’ll be first to know about new products, savings, contests and more!
