About our company
Simon's Specimen Shells Limited sells worldwide marine, terrestrial and freshwater shells to collectors and museums. We pride ourselves on the range of species that we offer – in terms of the range of molluscan families (usually over 230) and the in-depth selection of the most popular shells like Cypraea and Conus.
The company is operated on a day-to-day basis by Simon Aiken, and is the only limited company in the UK devoted to specimen grade shells (registered in England and Wales as company number 05236725). For more information about us, please see our FAQs section.
