Abstract

Molluscs and corals are natural objects of enchanting beauty and immense utility. These marine denizens gifted with fascinating ornamentation and eye catching designs and colours unparalleled in the living world, were objects of man's adoration and appreciation from time immemorial. Molluscs in general had a tremendous impact on Indian tradition and economy and were popular among the common man as ornaments, currency and as Panacea to ward off evil spirits, even at the inception of human culture..
