Dentalium octagulatum is a white, ridged shell with eight sides, thus the term octagulatum.

The larger shells, that are sold by the piece, are approximately 2" to 2.5" long. Call or email us for quantity pricing. A bag of 100 pieces weigh 1.8 oz.

The smaller shells are approximately 0.5" to 1" long. We sell them by kilogram (2.2 pounds). The pieces are a mix of sizes with the majority of shells measuring approximately 0.5" to 1" long. Please note, there may be some broken shells that are going to be smaller, perhaps, as little as 0.25" or 0.50" as well as some shells that will be longer than 1". Each bag will vary to some degree. These are bulk shells, so please take this into account when ordering.

Dentalium is a nightmare to find these days.
