The original crab claw for this bracelet came from a Florida beach. It's from a Damsel crab but looks exactly like a Blue crab except for the color. This is a unique piece and a great conversation starter. If your a Cancer, it's a must have. The bracelet with 5 claw is 7 1/2 long so each link is about 1 1/4 long. It has a nice solid feel. Not delicate. Can be for men or women.
