About our shell:
All shell products are legally imported to us from legitimate and recognized sources. All US permits are utilized when importing - there are three different US Import permits required for each shipment.
Our Mother of Pearl shell is a specially sourced form of MOP from the Philippines where the shell is spun, by nature, with layers of highly iridescent white pearl and an occasional ultra thin layer of golden color pearl. The golden micro-layers are not seen as gold directly to the eye but this feature gives the MOP from this shell a particular brilliance and light catching quality not seen in other MOP shell.
This feature of color and iridescence is only found in the Philippine shell. This is not your average Mother of Pearl.
