At stonesandshells.com, we enjoy a passionate reverence for the Earth, her seas, and the environment. We endorse and encourage sensitive ecological harvesting and mining techniques, as well as fair trade labor practices.
Sustainability of the marine environment is a cause that we embrace and honor. Our shells are harvested primarily for food purposes. After the food value is utilized by villagers who harvest the shells, the shells are sold as a by-product. We prefer to work with and support divers, villagers, and their partners whose views reflect our own respect and appreciation for Nature’s beautiful treasures.
We are grateful for the opportunity to share these wondrous gifts of Nature with those whose enthusiasm for these earth and marine specimens complements ours. We do not collect, handle or sell any endangered or protected species—ever. A portion of our proceeds is donated to marine environmental causes.
Over the years we have developed and honed our skills in cleaning, cutting, and polishing stones and shells. We also offer handcrafted jewelry made from extraordinary stones and shells.
Thank you for visiting our website. We will be adding more outstanding selections soon, so we hope you will return to visit us again as our site evolves.
Feel free to contact us if you are searching for any items in the categories of stones, crystals, rocks, minerals, fossils and shells, meteorites and jewelry made from same. We may have what you are searching for, or we will make every effort to locate it.
Be in peace,
