The Capiz seashell is scientifically known as Placuna Placenta: a fan-shapes to nearly round shell. This is a bivalve, slightly convex upper shell and almost flat lower shell providing a firmly strong protection for its delicate flesh. The wonderful, unique quality of the Capiz shell is that it is translucent, thin and almost colorless in nature. Very fine half round are lines indicates the growth of this highly valued marine life. So far, no single machine has been invented to completely process a novelty from Capiz seashell. The brilliance and intrinsic beauty of this seashell is beyond human creation. The Capiz shell’s origin is unknown today even though the Capiz shell has been common in the Pacific ocean around the Philippine Island waters for centuries. The Capiz shell has a beautiful white translucent inner shell that has been used in ornaments for decades. These soft white translucent Capiz ornament and Capiz decorative items are channeled in soft plated gold metal much the same way that stained glass is channeled in lead.
