Cowrie Shells In History: Cowrie shells have been viewed as a symbol of womanhood, fertility and wealth. Small cowrie shells have also been used by many societies as currency and gaming counters.
From Our Hands To Yours - Shell Source
On many Tropical islands, with harvested seafood having provided a nutritious meal, the shells are gathered up and taken to the local neighbourhood recycling facility.

The most recent bag of shells brought in for recycling contains cowries, cones and spiders. My job is to quickly sort the shells into types, size and quality in order that my boss can pay the family for their contribution to reducing waste on the island.

Once cleaned the shells are often made into craft items to further increase their value.
