On sponges at 30m. I see a 15mm hairline nacre line at the labral side on the edge between base and margin. You will have to look close under strong light to see the flaw. Superb margins with panther skin and blue halo. Dark orange base. Dark brown and orange brown top with white dorsal line. Despite the flaw this is a near GEM shell and outstanding with a superb color range.

Diver 20-25 m on sponge. Flawless TOP specimen with just a small indentation (s. picture). Very dark, almost black dorsum; nicely spotted margin with a wondeful blue halo round the shell. Fantastic specimen of an upper grade.
