Product Description

"Perhaps it does not matter very much what it is that one loves in this world; but love something one must."
Why do we love the classic shape of the scallop shell?

It is because it represents the most loved of the seven muses - the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite (Roman - Venus). Myth has it that Aphrodite was born out of the sea's foam and the castrated genitals of her father, Uranus. She floated, perched on a scallop shell, to Paphos on the island of Cyprus, where she became the Goddess of love, beauty and fertility. Aphrodite helps us learn about living in harmony, and is associated with the most emotional of the experiences of womanhood; she teaches how to be a sister, a daughter, a wife and lover. She helps you understand what it means to bear a child, experience passion and appreciate others. Her scallop shell symbol is a timeless representation of our capacity to love.

Our classic Fossil Ivory Carved Scallop Shell is, of course, completely handcrafted in our studio. 3/4 inch high, 3/4 inch wide. Shown with Fossil Walrus Ivory - Light. (Flat backed for durability.)

Complete with Sterling Silver or gold-filled chain.

Our Carved Scrimshaw Scallop Shell will help enrich your life.

Fossil Ivory Color Charts

Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. Our high quality fossilized ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time, Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any contemporary ivories by modern processes.
