Episcopal Mitre (Mitra Mitra)
Approx Size: 5 – 7 cm
A large group of several hundred species, the Mitridae are split into numerous genera to account for both animal and shell variations. They are a popular family with collectors and enjoy worldwide distribution.
This shell with its elaborate design of orange squares is a must for any collection.
A popular seller for it’s shape and colour. I have seen these used in a number of projects, art classes, in collections and even as light pulls.
Can be used as a stand alone ornament or in a bowl as the centrepiece of your coffee table.
