FamilyCassidae
NameCypraecassis coarctata - MONSTER AND DEEP ORANGE!
Size66.5 mm, w/o
LocalityParaiso Escondido, Nay,.Mexico
NoteFOR SERIOUS COLLECTORS ONLY!! This is a really big specimen for the species in top top quality! Unique brown-creme colors all around with 6 visible band lines with dark brown spots around. Natural grow marks as usual for the size and really not detracting the beauty!! Apex, lip and siphon canal really intact, very rare this conditions for the size. Very robust and heavy. And the most impressive of this Giant is the strong rare ORANGE base and inner lip WOW!! Really strong for the species a absent for sure in many collections. Original operculum absent in all collections too. Rare species nowadays believe me. Found at extremely low tide buried between lava cracks full with sand and until 20cm deep buried. Paraiso Escondido, near Punta de Mita, Nayarit, Mexico. .March 2018. By Eduardo Amador Moreno and Alejandro Alvarez Pelayo. Estimation: last specimen was sold for 225 and the size was 73mm and some chip on lip. This is 66.5mm and really orange and great quality, i think 150 to 200 euro or more. Lets start with 2 euro Good luck!!
