These are dyed Dentalium octagulatum shells. These are ridged shells with eight sides, thus the term octagulatum.
We sell them in one one kilogram bags (2.2 pounds). The pieces are a mix of dyed colors and sizes with the majority of shells measuring approximately 0.5" to 1" long. Please note, there may be some broken shells that are going to be smaller, perhaps, as little as 0.25" as well as some shells that will be longer than 1". Each bag will vary to some degree. These are bulk shells, so please take this into account when ordering.
There will be approximately 6,000 to 7,000 shells in each bag.
Please note that you will not receive the exact shells from the photos but ones very similar.
Also note that we have tested these on a paper towel and did not notice any bleed, but cannot be responsible for damage to garments or other items. Please do your own testing and use at your own risk.
