Seashell is a hard protective layer formed by some animals that live in the Sea. It is usually composed of calcium carbonate or chitin; the shells of marine molluscs are composed of calcium carbonate which endures better than that of chitin, thus those are the shells usually found washed up on beaches.
These natural shell beads have a natural chip shape to them. They have a somewhat very slight shine to them, but are not very light reflective. The color is a bright white, and would pair very nicely with any brightly colored beads.
Shells are believed to have the natural cleansing ability of the Sea embedded within them, and are thought to be ideal for dispersing negative energy. Seashells are also considered to be effective in cultivating intuition, and adaptability in communication settings.
