Note:  Despite the fact that the "conch" (in English, anyway!) shells are not super-shiny, monotonously ovoid in shape, over-named and over-priced, they remain quite popular with the "more discriminating" of collectors. Their SHAPES are their main attraction, being splendidly variable on this axis, but many have EXCELLENT COLOR as well. I highly recommend them to any and all non "gem-maniacs" who desire a bit of "spice" (shape-wise, especially!) in their shell cabinets.
