ABOUT ⧫ MANO DE LION

Mano de lion, also known as paw of the lion, are scallops that have colorful orange shells with large knobs similar to that of a lion’s paw. Many of these marine molluscs live off the coast near the Baja Peninsula and in the Sea of Cortez. These crushed shells have vibrant orange and purple hues that are mixed together with the white inner portion of the shell. This beautiful mosaic of colors would be a great and unique addition to your art/craft.

MATERIAL ⧫ SIZE

Our medium material is considered to be sand sized (very coarse sand to fine sand), ranging between 2 millimeters to 0.25 millimeters. This size is great for most woodworking inlays, memorial and resin jewelry, orgone  pyramids, ring inlay, resin molds, mosaics, terrariums, bezel cups, resin art, embellishments, and metaphysical projects. This material is also a great gift for makers looking for unique supplies or reiki practitioners that enjoy top quality stones.
