Sea Turtles spend most of their lives out in the great oceans. When they nest ashore, hatched eggshells provide nourishment to dune plant life such as beach grasses that in turn, help stabilize the coasts and prevent erosion. Keli'i Eli's jet-eyed sea turtle heads shorewards, getting there quickly thanks to powerful fore and hind flippers. Carved from one precious #8 Mine turquoise specimen, a masterfully detailed carapace with scutes is visually stunning. About 4" long, 2 1/4" wide and 2 1/2" tall.
