Spider Conch Shell – (Lambis Lambis)
Approx Size: Length 15cm, Height 5cm, Depth 7cm.
These shells are very distinctive with their six legs extending from the base of the shell.
The base colour of the shell is cream with some darker irregular markings.
In Mayan art the Spider Conch shells were used as paint and ink holders for scribes.
Would make a nice addition to your collection, a one off piece of Home Decor or a nice gift to a shell enthusiast
I have also seen these shells used in the making of shell hangers and novelties.
Would also make a stunning art project due to its striking markings and unique shape.
