Winged Triton Shell
Regular price $11.00
The highly ornamental Gyrineum pulchellum (nick-named "Kookaburra Shell"), shaped flamboyantly with extended 'wings' on either side are a truly intriguing iconic Australian shell from our tropical shores. Gorgeous sculpture and finely detailed ribbing is enhanced by the delicate tan colouring that fades towards white at raised points or tips of wings. These are incredibly beautiful shells - small sized at approx. 4-5.5cm (over 1", up to 2"). Pictured is a single shell (front and back). Always hard to obtain and much favoured by jewellers and artists.
