That's was very helpful, Gustavo.
But the type of claim which is named chorito in Pacific coast of Mexico is a smaller one and white, you could need more than a hundred to fill a "tarro".

Tarro is a large glass jar as those used for drinking beer.
Coritos is de diminutive for "choros": Tipe of claim which is tiny and it's picked up on the edge of the beach, buried into the sand.

This meaning for "choritos" can be a colloquialism used at the pacific coast of Mexico.
May be someone can give you a diferent idea, please be patient for more replies.
