Selected cone shells, carefully polished by hand to reveal their stunning colours. One of the most colourful and popular shells for amateur collections.

Background:
The Conidae family of shells comprises at least 300 species, and are successful predators feeding on small fish and other molluscs. The creature living within the cone shell is able to immobilise its prey with a harpoon-like tooth which can be extended beyond the length of the shell. The venom can be very painful and has been known to be fatal to humans on rare occasions.
