The Oyster Shell – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a shell / oyster with a pearl. Oyster is the common name for a number of different families of salt-water bivalve molluscs that live in marine or brackish habitats. In some species, the valves are highly calcified, and many are somewhat irregular in shape. Many, but not all oysters, are in the superfamily Ostreoidea.
Some types of oysters are commonly consumed (cooked or raw), and in some locales, they are regarded as a delicacy. Some types of pearl oysters are harvested for the pearl produced within the mantle. For instance, Windowpane oysters are harvested for their translucent shells, which are used to make various kinds of decorative objects..
