Trawled in 350m depth, live taken specimen shell. One of the greatest treasures from my drawers, a specimen of GEM+ quality, and by nature of its unique combination of beauty and perfection suitable for a world class collection. The shell is characterized by its rare maturity with peach colored callous which is not easily found even in the most expensive pieces ever sold. Magnificent and far beyond description.
