Ostracod @ Concubine Lane, Ipoh

Located HERE within the concubine lane (lorong panglima), there is one souvenir shop that sells “ostracod” a.k.a. shrimp seeds. It has luminescent properties, it is as tiny as 0.2mm to 2mm, a microorganism that lives on the seabed. Some even called them “Blue Sand”.

It is survived by a kind of energy from sea water, however their life is short and the blue “energy” ends in a few minutes when the waves are washed ashore.

Having such beautiful mini creatures is so enjoyable and you can decorate your bedroom too ☺️☺️☺️. However the price is slightly expensive, we had bought it at RM75.

Address: 1-29, Panglima Ln, 30000 Ipoh, Perak.
