Polished Blacklip Tahitian Pearl Oyster Shell


The colors of Tahitian pearls come from the blacklip oyster, Pinctada magaritafera. Each of our highly lustrous and colorful shells measure 4 to 5 inches in diameter and are polished on both sides. Colors range from shimmery graphite to bright greens, aubergines, golds and white.
Use them for displaying jewelry and other small items, to serve sauces or caviar or even as butter dishes. There are so many possible uses.
