Cymbiola perplicata (Hedley 1902).
51.8 mm., Gem.
Great pattern, color, quality, and dwarf size characterize this specimen of what was previously a rare volute. I will call this Gem because I really do not think that the very insignificant micro roughness on the lip (which has not been filed!) is a problem. This small specimen is one of the nicest and most beautiful being offered right now.this particular shell for its spectacular pattern and Gem quality. Very hard to get like this.
