The served as money, ornaments, and musical instruments, drinking cups and in the making of fine porcelains. They were also the symbols in rituals and religious observances, and the returning pilgrims wore them as a token of divine pardon. These islands are traditionally known for their shell wealth specially Turbo, Trochus, Murex and Nautilus. These shells are used for cottage industries producing a wide range of decorative items and ornaments. Shells such as Giant calm, Green mussel and Oyster support edible shellfishery; a few like Scallop, Clam and Cockle are burnt in kiln to produce lime. The soft baby animal, which lives inside the shell, is covered with a thick layer of specialize epithelium cells known as mantle, which in turn secretes a two tire shell material making the shell. The outer layer having a different colour pattern is organic in constitution, technically called ‘Periostracum’. Calcium ions from the environment are absorbed into the blood and deposited evenly under this layer. The next inner layer is called ‘nacre’ or ‘mother of pearl’ responsible for the pearly-luster common to many shells.
 
Corals
Corals Corals belong to a large group of animals know as Coelenterata (Stinging animals) or Cnidaria (thread animals). Corals grow slow. The massive forms may grow upto 2 cm. In diameter and upto 1 cm height in a year, whereas, delicate branching forms grow between 5 to 10 cm. Per annum. A true reef building stony coral may be unisexual or bisexual. They breed together once in a year at a pre-determined time after dusk. This process, at places is so interest that the water stays pinkish till next morning. A large number of baby corals are released in the open ocean this way. After sometime these baby corals settle over a suitable substratum and start forming new colonies through a sexual reproduction. The morphological features change with the environment in which they settle. Due to this peculiar character they are often called ‘plastic animals’. Stony corals could be broadly divided into reef builders and non-reef builders, the reef builders are called hermatypic whereas others are known as ahermatypic corals. The reef builders posses hard calcareous skeleton and need sunlight like plants to survive. On the other hand, the non- reef builders are devoid of a true stony framework and can live well without sunlight. A few among them are capable of making protein based solidified skeleton.
