Tuesday Treasure

This week's theme will continue with my treasures from the sea. A small collection of sea urchins that I've found and bought over the years.The large one in back is one that I've recently purchased, as it has a purple hue that is just so gorgeous, I couldn't resist! Most in my collection I have found, but my favorites are the ones that have kept their spikes and spines. I've collected them from all over the eastern beaches of Australia. Most still have sand in them!
Here's some more information on sea urchins, if you're interested in learning more about them.

Always fun looking at your treasures - to be honest I never knew those shells had spines - you learn something new each time...
