Coral and Shells made of Resin
Ever since we started selling natural shells, we have had the environmentally friendly policy of not trading in natural coral in order to protect this endangered product. We do not deal with companies who bribe corrupt officials in the source countries to change manifests to make it appear that the coral is old stock from before restrictions on its sale and movement were introduced.
We do appreciate however that there is a demand for naturally beautiful coral and so we aim to meet this demand by purchasing replica coral in designs based on actual coral pieces. These are reasonably priced, convincingly natural looking and can be used in freshwater and saltwater aquariums unlike real coral which is only suitable for marine aquariums.
When our importer
first displayed our lovely resin coral at a West
Country trade show he was nearly lynched as it's so beautiful
some customers thought it was the real thing. There were
a few stand offs and he replaced the word "resin" with "fake" as
in that part of the West Country "resin" is
a word more popularly associated with a class 2 drug.
This artificial coral is extremely
lifelike and exceptionally beautiful and we also have
clam which looks stunning either way up. It's also a
great accompaniment around real seashells and as standalone
This realistic fake coral is going to be a winner this year
for truly unique nautical decor and wedding displays.
Endless uses in fact!
We also have resin clam shells, resin starfish, resin fish
and a selection of other resin shells on this page.
