No data, Broome is my estimation

VERY LARGE SPECIMEN. RARE SIZE FOR DECIPIENS. DARK MARGINS AND DORSUM, EXCELLENT SHAPE. JUST A 1MM NACRE PROBLEM LOWER MARGIN, OTHERWISE PERFECT SHELL. GEM TERMINALS.

Collected by diver on sponge in 20-24m. WELL OVER THE 60mm TRESHOLD. ALWAYS EXTREMELY HARD TO GET SIZE. EXCELLENT SPECIMEN, ONLY SOME SILT INCLUSIONS ON THE BASE, UNIMPORTANT IN MY OPINION. WONDERFUL ADDITION TO THE SIZE SUITE!
