Zoila jeaniana

Zoila jeaniana is one of my preferred cowrie. So elegant and  charming with its mixed colours!  Dark top to snow white base. Or even mixed brown, orange and yellow tones with contrasting spots and patches everywhere. Shining brown or spectacular burnt orange base. Here are displayed 2 large specimens respectively of 85 and 83 mm, with different colouration, both with a breathtaking pattern. The first is from Peter Demertzis (provenience Carnarvon - West Australia), the second is from Luigi Raybaudi (provenience Quobba Point - West Australia). This perfection is extremely rare.
