FamilyCypraeidae
NameZoila friendi - BEST OUTSTANDING GIANT , Gray, 1831
Size93.7 mm
LocalityAustralia
NoteOne of the very BEST giant friendi of my private collection. Rare and incredible Gem quality for such enormous size. Extremely few friendi exist with this combination of size, colour and quality, with most 90 mm+ giants exhibiting flaws to varying extent. Dorsum with ultra-dark, densely deposited, coalescent chestnut maculae across a blue and tan ground. Ultra-dark chestnut-black ventrum. Markedly broad form. Hypermature. Greatly attenuated, recurved terminals. Impossible to get better. The BEST of the best. A treasured shell from my private collection, now to be passed only to another connoisseur of the world's very best seashells. Size: 93.7 mm (length). Grading: Gem. Data: Off Carnac Island, Western Australia, Australia; upon limestone reef substrate, upon sponge upon reef ledge; 10 m; dived; 2014. Provenance: JES private collection, Melbourne/London.
