Clam Shell Fragment

Item Number: 0051
Manufacturer: Drummer Cove Design

A clam is a kind of mollusk that has a shell divided into two pieces called valves. This shell fragment is 2"  wide and weighs 0.5 oz.
In other words, a clam is a bivalve mollusk. The word "clam" has no real taxonomic significance in biology. It can be used to mean a bivalve other than an oyster, mussel, or scallop, and that has a more-or-less oval shape, or a freshwater mussel. In October 2007 an Arctic island clam off the coast of Iceland was discovered to be at least 405 years old, and was declared the world's oldest living animal by researchers from Bangor University.

The technique of replicating the exact shape of sea creatures was developed by Jeff Mitchell, a pewter smith who lives in Wellfleet, Cape Cod. All Sea Creatures are cast in a high grade, lead-free pewter.
