Sea Urchins

Many, many beautiful sea urchin shells from the Croatian seashore. The fabulous Juliane collected them in her holidays and gave them to me.
I'm in wonder!

This one still has what I think must have been its mouth or maybe the opposite.

An inside view.

She even brought along some that still have their spines.

The spines are attached to joints.

Some broken sea urchins.

Sea shells with iridescent mother of pearl inside.

She also gave me heaps of wonderful big broken and quite smelly snail shells that look like they're a thousand years old. I haven't taken pictures of these yet.

A huge THANK YOU goes out to Jule and Katja who dived for and collected these treasures!
