Polished Dyed Copper Semanticus (africa) Shells (3½"-4")

Polished down from thick calcium outer layer. This is truly a beautiful shell

Family: Turbinidae. This family features a thick turban-shaped shell with an iridescent interior. The operculum or trap door is distinctive in that it is thick and solid like a rock. There are several hundred known species within the tropical seas. Most are vegetarian and feed on algae.

Interesting Facts: The generic name for Turban shells is turbo, which is Latin for spinning top. If you order Escargot on an island, you will most likely be served the turban snail and not the typical land snail associated with this delicacy.
