PORCELAIN TIGER CLAM LAVA SHELL
The Porcelain Tiger Clam Lava Shell is handcrafted using high quality porcelain. Each shell is hand painted, replicating the beautiful lustre and appearance of natural shells. They have been cast from the ideal ergonomic natural shell and are more uniform in size and thickness.
NATURAL TIGER CLAM LAVA SHELL
The Natural Tiger Clam Shells are from the Philippines and are composed of calcium carbonate. The clams are collected by local free-divers and the shells are removed so the clam can be prepared for food. The shells were previously discarded as waste, but now local islanders are employed to sort through them looking for the right size, shape and symmetry. They are then sand polished, so they are nice and smooth and bonded together. Because they are natural, they will come in different shapes, sizes and thicknesses.
Lava Shells are smooth and non-porous so they will not absorb bacteria, massage oils or dead skin cells like basalt stones. This makes them more hygienic and easier to clean. The shells can withstand a great deal of pressure in massage but can break if dropped on a hard floor so please handle with care.
