Cypraea rosselli satiata Bernier Island form (#4639)

Cypraea eludens (#4629)

Gem- 64.6mm: Fresh dark colours with that classic blue dorsal halo, very heavy base, nice size, beautiful shape & lovely base colour.

Livonia nodiplicata (#4624)

F+++/Gem: ZERO erosion or growth scars with perfect clean pattern and strong colour with a beautiful pinkish undertone (nicer even than the pics) over the main body of the shell! Nice mature lip edge and rich red/orange aperture. It is extremely rare to find the colour and pattern anywhere near as nice as what you see here, they are very prone to dorsal erosion, worm holes and scars…As close to the perfect nodiplicata as you will find anywhere!
