Our tigerina mussels are a great way of discussing ‘rough and smooth’. This mussel, which is securely glued together, has been left in its natural state. It has a ridged surface with lovely individual ring markings around the surface of the shell. No two are alike. This one can be compared with the ‘smooth’ tigerina (also available under a separate listing) and the contrast is very obvious. These cannot be opened as they are firmly glued together. Approx 8-10cm.
Rough Tigerina Mussel Shell
All of our shells are by-products of catering trades around the world and are NOT farmed specifically for our use. Please note that as shells are natural products, some edges may be jagged and although every care is made to ensure that no products are sent that we would consider dangerous, we do advise careful supervision whilst allowing children to handle these items.
