Shilshole Seashell Specimen Study:
Found almost exclusively in a narrow region of Puget Sound, these always rare and virtually invisible saltwater and freshwater mollusks fed on urban and industrial outfall.
These shells represent the mid-point of this famous collection. Shown here are shells selected for their choice quality, larger size , and impressive coloration. Light sensitive.
A Memorial Vase filled with Peruvian Lily Blossoms or Alstroemeria* is always placed nearby. The fragrance of the blossoms counteracts the faint odor of the sea that still lingers about the shells.
