Hello again:

I have posted these photos of a lovely pair of Neobernaya spadicea:
largest specimen from Laguna Beach, California (USA) 48 mm. Typical with bluish margins.
Smallest specimen from Santa Mónica, California (USA) 41.5 mm. Found in a shipwreck. Note the rusty nacre on this small one in its background.






Regards,
Beni Cool

Hi Beni,

Thanks for sharing these two nice shells.

The specimens found on shipwrecks that turn an almost ruby red colour are spectacular looking shells.

Even very fresh collected standard shells display those wonderful purple margins. It's a pity they fade after a while.

Thanks for your comments, Ozcyp & SB. I agree. The strong purple colour of those shells faded with the years but fortunately not too much compared with other shells, at least in my own experience with my shells...
Regards,
Beni Cool
