    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.

                  The base doesn't react with the shells because carbonate is a base.

                    They fixed the solution to plastic pollution. 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

                      If you mix the lime in with volcanic ash and pebbles you will get Roman concrete

                        You already know the shells will be dissolved b some of the acids, so why keep on with it?
