The Scallop Shell
The scallop shell is named for the fluted edges of the fan shaped shell and, like oysters and clams, is a mollusk with two shells. Interestingly, the scallop is one of the few bivalve shells that can swim freely. By rapidly opening and closing their valves these shells can propel themselves backwards over the ocean floor and escape from predators. There are over 400 species of the Pectenidae family worldwide.
IT'S UNIQUE !
All The Coral Studio's "Virgin Island Fossil Coral" line are made using Fossil Coral Rock from on land in the British Virgin Islands. Live coral lives underwater, and Fossil Coral can be found there too, but we use Fossil Coral exclusively gathered from on shore. It's absolutely unique because no one else in the world makes figurines this way. And when you own one of these pieces you will be displaying artwork that is ecologically friendly.
