  • What is it: Troca Shells are medium to large, triangle shaped sea snails with an operculum and Mother of pearl on the inside. Mother of pearl, also known as Nacre, is an organic and inorganic material produced by select mollusks as an inner shell layer, it also makes up the colorful, iridescent outer coating of pearls. 
  • History: Throughout history, some cultures placed very little value on pearls and instead placed value on the luminescent mother-of-pearl shells. Before the 19th century, Japanese shell divers would often toss pearls when found. It is said that Polynesian children used pearls as marbles. In the Americas, Abalone was eaten and the shell used as inlay on carved objects made of wood, ivory, and bone.
  • Metaphysical Properties: Mother of pearl is said to be a protection stone, by bringing the gentle healing power of the sea. It is believed to be a stress relieving stone as well as relaxing, soothing, and calming. Mother of Pearl encourages imagination, sensitivity, and adaptability.
  • Because shells are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead.
