Hi,

I would be grateful every idea and help with my shells and would ask which is the best way to select this small shells from the debris. I make it for more than a year but have 2 liters from five. I think never could finish it <img src="images/smiley/smile.gif" alt="" border="0" />
My other question is how can store this small shells?

Thanks,

Mark

When I worked for a museum we stored them in small plastic tubes, the data was written in pencil on a small piece of paper and then rolled up and put into the tube with the shells.

You can get the tubes from Naturalists suppliers liek Watkins and Doncaster here in England. They do have a website, if you google the name it should come up. As to boxes, some other suppliers do them but try shell specialist dealers. I think there is someone who sells them on the British Shell Collectors Club website.

Hello,

Thanks for ideas. Claude’s way looks more showy but Dave’s looks more simple but I haven’t idea where can get boxes or tubes. (earlier I thinking on the tubes of cooking aromas but can’t remove the signs and haven’t enough)

Regards,

Mark
