Endangered Species Update:

Unfortunately, we're unable to supply the famous Pink Queen Conch (Strombus gigas) due to its listing by C.I.T.E.S. as an endangered species. However, we're delighted to be able to offer you a number of other Conches - including some that can be crafted into musical instruments such as horns.

If the scientific names of seashells are important to you - and they should be -  you'll find a complete list below of the larger shells we offer. Along with each Latin name you'll find the Catalogue Reference Number.

Please note that although small shells for craftwork are also available, they may not be featured in the Catalogue.
