About Capiz Shells: 
Capiz shells are actually the outer shells of a marine mollusc; its scientific name is placuna placenta, more commonly known as "windowpane oyster". Philippine Capiz shells are so named because they were originally harvested from the shallow coastal waters near the town of Capiz, on the island of Panay. Once cleaned, the shells are naturally translucent and, when painted, allow for a glorious interplay between light and colour.

This handmade tea light holder is designed in the shape of an open lotus flower, with three rings of translucent capiz shell petals. 5 from tip to tip, 2 high. Silver plating of the base and shell edging gives each tea light holder a cool and elegant look. Use with wax or battery-powered tea light, or small votive candle.
Dimensions: Approximately 13.5 cm
