    Today we're testing a viral video that claims dipping sea shells in vinegar over night will turn them to glass. We're testing that out along with a few other acids.

          CaCO3(s) + Hac(aq)=

          H30+(aq) +CaCO3= AC- (aq) +Ca 2+) +
          HCO3= H2O+ CO2

            I'm pretty sure the sulfuric acid didn't do much to the shell because it didn't have enough water in it.

              That clear seashell is clearly a resin 3d print, it even has the bumps from the supports still on it.

                        there is a long tradition of making decorated eggs by selectively dissolving off layers of shell using a wax resist. ... could be really cool to adapt that idea to some seashells!
                        hmmm.... time for a new project for me.

                                I find this interesting because my friend had lice over the summer. So we put her shell necklace in vinegar and it just totally dissolved

                                              Maybe instead of fillling land holes we can burn it in Acid? I am not sure because I havent thought this through.
