Description & Application:
Exquisite natural mini pearl troca shells. Especially suited to producing shell boxes and personalised event invitations

Background: The name troca refers to how the shell rotates on its own axis, from the Greek word trokhoeides - meaning wheel like.
The shells are common in indo-pacific regions, and many have a thick inner layer of nacre (mother of pearl) which is exposed on polished troca shells.

Troca Shells in History: Large species of troca shell (trochus niloticus) have been commercially exploited to make mother of pearl buttons.

Safety Information: Not suitable for children under 36 months as the shells may present a choking hazard.
