Green limpets, also referred to as half-white limpets, are found on rocks in intertidal waters in areas of West Mexico to Ecuador. These pretty green limpet shells are teal green in color and have a smooth interior. As these are a natural product you will find some of the shells a bit paler or white. They are 1/2" to 1 1/4" long.

They come in bags of 100 shells. The bags of 100 have an average weight of 86.2 grams or 0.19 pounds. The 100-pieces packs can vary considerably depending on the size of the shells in the pack.

You may also buy the shells by the pound. There are approximately 526 shells per pound.
