*SOLD* The real molted shell of a dungeness crab is the focal point for this glass paperweight with magnifying properties. It makes a long-lasting gift of distinction. Not just for holding down papers - this unique display makes a one-of-a-kind keepsake. Especially popular as a gift for crabbers, business professionals and people with a home office. Great for table and shelf displays too! See more information about the story behind this specimen below. Please note: this is a molted shell and no crab was harmed. Paperweight is 3 1/8" diameter.

~ Story behind the crab: While beachcombing, Em came upon this perfectly molted exoskeleton. Since is was still wet, she quickly placed the legs in the position shown in the paperweight, because once the shell is dry, there is no way to arrange the legs without breaking. As a crab grows, they molt their shell. When lucky, you can find an unbroken exoskeleton on the beach. Here are a couple of really good videos by other people on the subject: Juvenile Dungeness Crab Molting and Juvenile Dungeness Crab Exoskeletons
