THESE SPECIMEN BOXES ARE CRITICAL FOR PROTECTING YOUR COWRIES and OLIVES.

Plastic specimen boxes - 68mm x 56mm x 28mm high. Protect your specimens! ( base depth = 10mm). 80cents each or 10 boxes for $6.

These boxes protect specimens with a glossy surface like Cowries and Olives by preventing chemicals in the air from interacting with the shell surface. Timber cabinets or cabinets made from particle board leach chemicals into the atmosphere and can cause your shells to deteriorate by attacking the glossy shell surface.
