With this page, you will be able to know the possible shells available.
Note that the sizes are given to the nearest hundredth because taken using a digital caliper, only to avoid possible duplicates in each species.
Some rare and beautiful exceptional shells to discover here.

Caution :
The sizes of the shells are expressed in millimeters (mm).
The quotations offered in Euros (€) are sometime absent, or shown as : "P.o.r." (Price on request), but can be requested from the Webmaster.
On the other hand, for the listings of Nigerostrated, the stages mentioned in the descriptions of the shells were established in relation to the stages mentioned in my Book, therefore in comparison with Melanism and Rostration for species which blacken and / or rostrate (Eglantinas, Cauricas, Stolidas, etc ...), rostration however taking precedence over melanism ", and in comparison with rostration alone, for those which rostrate only (Erosas, Clandestinas, Vitellus, etc.).

Notes :
In the descriptions, the following details must be taken into account, namely:
- a) : 100.00% Niger is said when black appears "black" to the eye under cover, but still has some lighter areas when exposed to sunlight or artificial lights (LED lighting, in particular!)
- b) : 100.00% Niger "intense" or "charcoal" are said when black appears "always black" to the eye, even when exposed to sunlight or artificial lights (LED lighting, in particular!)
- c) : the stages indicated in the descriptions (stage 2+, or again: stage 3--, etc ...) are established in relation to the stages mentioned in my book, base of references.

Remarks :
The maximum graduation of "quality" of the shells will top off at "F+++/Gem", for the most perfect.
This graduation is established according to an expert opinion with the naked eye without a magnifying glass.
All minor imperfections (various micro-streaks, air bubbles, inclusions, colored-discolored spots, holes, hollows, depressions, various positive-negative reliefs, various defects, etc.), refinished or even reconstructed by the animal, and / or difficult to detect or detect without a magnifying glass, are included in this maximum graduation.
