  • Rare, vintage land snail shell beads 8-10mm diameter
  • 29-inch strands
  • Bought in Abidjan, Ivory Coast when I lived there in 1971 and I've seen very few since then.
  • Snail shell beads are thinner than Clam Shell heishi and much thinner than Ostrich Eggshell heishi. They also have a soft grey tone, as opposed to the white or creamy color of other African shell beads.
