View Full Product Info


Used and traded by costal tribes, this tusk like shell was traded widely along costal areas and even made their way to the Great Plains. These shells created a different style of cape for clothing, extend the length of earrings and could be used to adorn hair styles. Their signature milky white color is common but they can also be found in variations of green.

Shells come in all sizes and color variations, this is the way of all things created by nature.

Measurements range from a 1/2 inch long to 1 3/4 inches long.

Sold by the ounce.

fast shipping and good quality

I purchased two bags of dentalium shells, and they arrived within a few days. Packaging was very good quality, and the product was also good quality. I will be ordering again! thank you-

Dentalium was not as pictured above

I purchased two bags and what I recieved is shiny, but it is definitely very ridged and not smooth as pictured above. Still usable, vast majority is very small (as described, just be aware 97% are about .5") just definitely not what I was hoping for and I was a little let down upon receiving my package
