Dark Green Natural Reeve’s Turbo
Approximate Size: Width 4.5cm – Height 2.5cm – Depth 3cm
The “Turban” shells are from a large family of several hundred species. All have thick, shelly operculae and are vegetarian. Most live in the shallow waters of warm tropical seas. The green Turban is the largest of the species and many are shipped from East Africa to the Far East for use in the Mother-of-Pearl Industry.
A striking shell to add to your shell collection or as a gift to someone who is interested in shells. A popular shell among our customers.
Would also make a good subject in an art project – for either photography or to sketch.
