Day 53: Shells from Japan

These shells were brought back from the fishing village my sister and I stayed in when we visited Japan. The colorful ones are abalone shells and the white ones were described as "Tako Shells." I've never heard of an octopus that has a shell so I'm not sure what kind of shell they actually are but they're absolutely beautiful in person. The shell is so thin it's translucent. There are four or five abalone shells and two Tako shells.
