Mussel shell fragments litter the matrix, so much so that even in the finest grain size it looks to have been laced with glitter. The original shell material that makes them appear iridescent (nacre) is preserved, which makes it somewhat surreal to sort through - as if this dirt was shoveled from a river yesterday. The colors are more vibrant when they’re damp. Unfortunately they are extremely fragile and crumble if you so much as look at them.
