Purple Cowrie

$ 165.00

The Snake Head Cowrie is found under the coral rocks in the Indo-Pacific, from the East African Coast to the Hawaiian coasts.  It is dark brown and oval shaped, with a white spotted, and raised central area.  A white mantle line runs along the top of the shell, and a gorgeous purple coloring hides just underneath it in a lower layer of the shell.  When the Snake Head Cowrie is dipped into an acidic formula, its beautiful purple coloring is revealed.
