The sand mussel - Mya Arenaria - a beautiful symbol of the purification of water. HAVET (The Sea)

This jewelry is part of Guldviva's 30 collection. Through a collaboration with the John Nurminen Foundation, each piece of jewelry in the 30 collection contributes to removing 30 kilos of algae from the Baltic Sea. Thank you for helping us help the Baltic Sea!

Mussels are amazing in many ways. Each small mollusc filters several liters of water per hour, eating up substances such as nitrogen and phosphorus that would otherwise feed the growth of algae in HAVET (The Sea). It is estimated that all the different types of mussels together filter the entire volume of water in the Baltic Sea at least once a year. This can be compared to the inflow and outflow at Denmark, where it takes about 20 years to replace the Baltic Sea water.
