The Tiny Gold Shells Mix, shown with our Medium Getaway Bottle, demonstrates the size of these tiny shells. It can be difficult to imagine how tiny these shells are. So here are some dimensions for you: The Medium Getaway Bottle measures only approximately 16mm (5/8 inch) in diameter and 35mm (1.4 inch) tall. So, the shells actually measure less than 5mm or about 3/8 inches wide!
(Bottle sold separately.)
Where in the World Do We Find These Tiny Gold Shells?
Baby Trochus – Australia
For the most part, Baby Trochus Shells grow in two regions of Australia. First, they grow in the region off the north and west coasts of Australia. Unfortunately, the Baby Trochus does not have an Australian accent, however, it can help you remember an Australian accent!
In addition, the Baby Trochus shell loves to tumble around in your Getaway Bottle. We have chosen this natural cone-shaped shell to complement the trio!
Factoid: Would you like to know what Baby Trochus like to eat? Answer: Algae! Maybe it’s because they have such a small mouth?
Periwinkle – Northern Europe and Northeastern US
That’s right, Periwinkle is not just a crayon color! We have included another tiny shell, the Periwinkle. Historically, the Periwinkle grew only along the rocky shores of Northern Europe. However, in 1857, it was introduced in America. Because of that, the Periwinkle has become very common along the rocky shores of New England! Welcome to America!
The Periwinkle is also called the Black Litorina. It grows in a basket-shaped shell with a beautiful swirl on the side. This smooth shell actually comes in a variety of natural colors. This time, we have chosen to coat it with a gold metallic sheen! The Periwinkle adds just the right shape variety to your Tiny Gold Shells!
Pearl Umbonium – South Pacific
We have also added the Pearl Umbonium shell. This shell says “Artsy and Fun!” For the most part, we find the Umbonium grows in the South Pacific. We have pictured it in the middle of the three shells. In the photo, you can see why it is called “Pearl” Umbonium. The humble Umbonium has built its shell with beautiful mother-of-pearl!
The Umbonium is also called the “Button-top Shell.” We like to call it a “Cinnamon Bun Shell” because it is shaped like a tiny cinnamon bun! The “Cinnamon Bun Shell” lives just under the beach’s surface. It continually polishes its shell on the shifting sand. Because of this, it has a fine natural polish and luster. As a result, the Pearl Umbonium is so shiny, it is a favorite shell of the hermit crab!
