Students (and teachers) of all ages are amazed to see a shell being opened and watch a real pearl emerging! It is such a valuable lesson to learn by participating in the entire process. Plus the students get to keep a treasured pearl to show their parents and friends. The oyster opening facilitates the entire educational process, and at the same time, the students are having FUN! Did you know we now have a fantastic lesson plan available for teaching with the oysters if you decide to purchase.

Every shell is guaranteed to contain one genuine pearl. These pearls range in size from 5.0 mm to 7.0 mm. (The average size is 6 mm) Pearl colors include cream, gold, white, pink, silver and lavender. Each individual shell comes in its own see-through can with an easy open top. The shells are very easy to open. You can use a plastic butter knife or even just your fingers. (Not like a food oyster which is very hard to open)
Shipping is from Massachusetts office via UPS regular ground and is added to the invoice. The shells are packed in a safe preserving solution. They are not alive, but preserved.
