The use of shells as amulets dates back centuries, rooted in various cultures and civilizations across the globe. These delicate treasures from the sea were believed to possess mystical powers and were used as symbols of protection, luck, and spiritual connection.
In ancient times, shells were often associated with the ocean and its vast depths, representing the power and abundance of the sea. They were seen as gifts from the divine, carrying the essence of the water element and the energy of the tides.
In many coastal communities, shells were worn as amulets to ward off evil spirits and bring good fortune. The belief in their protective properties stemmed from the idea that shells were created through a natural process, formed layer by layer, thereby encapsulating the energy of growth and resilience.
