    does anybody know exactly how cowrie shells are
    collected? are they collected off the shore, swept
    from the sea, or what. ive been searchin for this
    info for a while. ive asked many people. people
    that sell them, wear them, whatever and no one
    can tell me. on the internet ive found pretty much
    anything i would want to know about them EXCEPT
    how they are collected. i know that they are small
    snail-like creatures that live in tropical water but
    are they killed for their shells or are their leftover
    shells just simply picked up from the shore. i must
    know this for sure before i ever wear them.
