River Mussel Half Size ~ 25 - 30cm
The river mussel belongs to the same family of marine bivalves as clams and oysters. These mussel shells have been highly polished removing it's rough outer layers to reveal its stunning rainbow of mother-of -pearl colours underneath.
This beautiful highly polished very large river mussel half is a stunning feature for any home or office. It also makes a wonderful dish to keep a smaller collection of seashells in to display, and beautiful crystals.
If you are a magpie like me and like collecting shiny things, this shell is ideal for displaying all these lovely treasures without having to hide them away in a trinket box!
