      heh heh, yeah these snails look wild :)

      i have a pic of them in a rock pool I may upload at some stage, and also I have converted this pic to b&w and think it looks better

      I'm not sure if all of them have ridges inside, but some do

      here it is in b&w:

      They remind me of the AT&T logo.

      All your photos are beautiful!

      Interesting how these lines are spirals on the surface of shells whose structures are spirals. So your picture shows a complex collection of multiple spirals (a tag for spirals might be helpful).

      yes, these snails are very interesting especially in a bunch

      feel free to add tags to any photos you come across that you think may have been overlooked - i often do and it's a reason the tag box is able to be used by other people, thanks for mentioning it :)

      Funny, I can almost touch and feel these, and here the gently hollow noise they make as I shuffle my fingers through them - beautiful design on each individual makes for a stunning whole....

      Did you find them all in a pile like this?

    15. *omnia* 83 months ago | reply

      they were pretty much like that, but with other shells and stones in there too - so i took them out

      but i went back another time and there were hardly any, so it might have been the tide and weather at that time that meant a lot of them accumulated in one spot

      I found similar shells on eBay and they were called "sundial" shells. The ones that were described as black and white also photographed as navy and white. This shape came in other colors. There were also different shapes that were called sundial shells. The name refers to the type of pattern that resembles a sundial. None were as beautiful as these.
