Giant Killer Clam Shell Tridacna Gigas Beautifully Polished Undulating Teeth 12 "
This is an estate sale find that I have come to find out has been cleaned and polished. While most of these large clam shells have the sharp exterior edges ground smooth, this shell has had that treatment in addition to an interior polishing. It is far more attractive in this condition, however, if you are looking for a shell in its natural state this is not the shell for you. That being said, this is a real beauty -- long undulating teeth, beautiful white color, and super smooth. While it is be...autiful just as décor, it could definitely be used as a serving piece for shrimp or other seafood or condiments. It measures approximately 12" X 7" X 5" (L x W x H) but in comparison to other shells of this size has considerably more heft at nearly 5 12 lbs. Please note that there is red sea life attached on the back side of this shell mostly near the tip of the hinge point (see last photo). I have a perfect feedback rating and hope to keep it through accurate descriptions and superior service. I describe all items to the best of my ability. All descriptions and facts given are what I believe to be true. However, it is impossible for me to be an expert on everything I sell, so please keep this in mind as you make your potential purchase. When in doubt, please do your own research and email questions as all sales are final. SHIPPINGPlease note that I live in Hawaii. I typically ship via USPS Priority Mail (2-5 days). Dependent on your location, shipping from Hawaii can be more expensive and sometimes takes an extra day. To help compensate for this, I do not charge for packing materials or handling. However, for some more valuable items I will add an additional charge for insurance. I ship same business day if payment arrives before noon otherwise I ship next business day. I take pride in giving prompt service, expert packing, and I always leave immediate positive feedback upon receipt of payment.

This shell could be taken to an expert for an exact age range, a location, and the types of conditions it lived through. These fossils are amazing This shell cost 800 about 4 years ago, and with minerals and fossils their prices dont deteriorate, they go the other way.Starting the Auction very low given what it is I have for sale, Selling due to down sizing at home, and just not having the space to do an incredible piece like this justice The shell weighs approximately 1.5kgs and has a length of approx 25cm and width of approx 16cm.
