This beautiful, naturally striped chambered nautilus seashell (Nautilus pompilius linne) is commercial grade #1 quality, but as with anything created by Earth Mother herself, it is naturally imperfect. The chambered nautilus shell does show signs of natural aging, such as scars, blemishes, chips, cracks and broken points. But, these are what make the seashell so unique! Do note that the black on the shell is paint, which was done in the Philippines by merchants to cover the blotchy area of the seashell caused by the secretions of the animal that lived in it. You will receive the shell shown in the accompanying photographs.
If you are a shell collector or if you are just seeking something fun to beautify your home, garden or patio, consider this striped, chambered nautilus shell.
