Capiz

The shell type Capiz is a species that was originally discovered on the island of Capiz. The shell is almost circular and very thin, glassy and even slightly translucent. These shells live on sandy and muddy soils to a depth of about 100 meters. The shells are an important commercial product in the Philippines, as it is possible to make various very beautiful objects. Nowadays the capiz is often colored or lightly processed in lamps, candle holders, souvenir articles and even as a kind of stained glass windows. The most popular variants are the Christmas variants. One then makes very luminous colored pieces of art in the shapes of stars that can then be hung during the holiday months
