Name: Murex pecten
Location: Indo-Pacific Oceans
Stunningly intricate, pure white specimen shells, specially selected from approved sources for interior decoration, window dressing and photographic work. Murex is the name given to a group of medium to large sized carnivorous tropical sea snails. Many of the species are found in Indo-Pacific waters, however, this shell is unique due to its array of spines. The spines provide protection from predators, and prevent the snail from sinking into soft mud.
These shells were used as natural combs by the ancient Greeks.ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT unique specimen you will receive. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device.
