A shell is the most universally identifiable part of a creature known as a mollusk.

Mollusks are invertebrate animals (think of a snail) with an unsegmented, basically symmetrical body, generally consisting of head, foot, visceral hump and mantle. Mollusks are descendants from primitive wormlike creatures inched around in the ooze of primeval seas millions of years ago. As dissolving land masses began to feed salts and chemicals into oceans, the first mollusks digested them and eventually used them to build durable shelters. See the rest of the article.

Classifications of Mollusks

All mollusks have soft bodies. In fact, Mollis is Latin and Malakos is Greek for soft. The study of mollusks is known as Malacology. Most mollusks develop hard shells to protect them from their hostile environment. Their fleshy mantle secretes a shell in generally a single or pair of valves. Based on their shell type, scientists and educators engaged in Malacology have classified mollusks into six classes. See the rest of the article

How Shells are Named

ethcial fair trade sea shell jewelry fair trade
Shells are named using Systema Natuae which was developed by Swedish naturalist Karl Linne. This system gives each species a two part Latinized name consisting of genus and species. A genus name is like a persons surname. It appears first and is always capitalized. The species name is like a persons first name and is never capitalized. Following the Latin binomial comes the name of the person who scientifically proposed the binomial. Latin is used because it is a “dead” and unchanging language.

By admin on July 21st, 2013

Hello! you are in the right place
to find out about Stone Mosaic Jewelry
and this revolutionary social project.

You have been reading some authentic letter

from a Mexican woman to her loved one

in the United States.  Or a letter from a child

to his daddy, who has been away from home for years …

These letters are for real.

 

They are true stories

very personal stories

what women live when

men disappear from their lives.

when they leave on the perilous road
up north over the Rio Bravo
to look for work in the United States.

Thank God our parents and our grandparents gave to us an important tradition of handcraft jewelry-making in the home workshops of our village in Guerrero, México

nieves-nina

 Thus we go on defending ourselves and struggling
so that our children have food to eat; now that our
jewelry is so well accepted in the market we have
to hurry and work hard to keep up with production.
