    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.

            Since when are videos like the one you tested actually trustworthy anyway? They’re all pure content-farming, it’s sick how blatant it is and how platforms allow low-quality content.

                                        Redo this with different types of shells! If you can find people with ramshorn snails get some shells with them, ramshorns have transparent shells and you can actually see their hearts beating! I found one on the edge of a lake near me that looks like crystal clear glass.

I had similar ideas with a shop shell since plastic is a non decomposed matter, But I think since shrimp shells are organic matter it would decompose over a period of time. So their is no way that it could become to much
