Gorgeous gastropod specimen that would fit very well in a Cabinet of Curiosity. The slab was prepared so as to highlight the large Campanile and the smaller gastropods and bivalves. A completely natural piece with a few small shells glued back to their original position.
As in most Campanile specimens, the apex shows natural abrasion linked with the way of life.
Wonderul colors, all natural. Matrix stabilized.
