Capiz shells are a light weight yet durable semi transparent shell. These have been cut into a flat round shape and have had one hole drilled towards the edge of each shell. Capiz are a favorite craft item that can be glued, set in resin, strung in strands, made into placemats, etc. They have a very elegant flair and so are also popular as wedding decorations. These sea shells have been professionally cleaned and sterilized and have been legally and sustainably harvested. Out of country buyers I am sorry but due to US export law, I am unable to ship sea life out of country.
