NoteThe Costellariidae and its close cousin Mitridae, are generally underrated by collectors, perhaps because many of them are a bit smaller than the average shiny cowrie or cone, murex or volute, and identification is notoriously difficult!!  That said, they endlessly delight the eye and mind with a surprising array of sculptures (ie, surface features), forms and patterns, as well as often being quite colorful.  If you have overlooked them in the past, or just wish to try something different, I strongly recommend these two kindred families. Get yourself a hand lens for the smaller ones (LOTS of things look better up close!!), and prepare to have fun!
