This year has been the fourth consecutive that we have attended the Paris shell show. As always, it has been very well organized, with great public assistance and many specialized collectors from all over the world. We had a table of 4 meters with varied material mainly from South America. Some rare species, some common, small and large sizes. This issue is important to cover all types of public, from collectors who are starting to experts who require very specific specimens. Here the photos of our stand:
Mixed shells, landsnails and freshwater mussels from many places: Spain, Ecuador, Cuba, Perú, Indonesia…
Large size pieces. Spondylus calcifer, Lobatus galeatus, Lobatus peruvianus, Neorapana muricata, Neorapana grandis, Hexaplex regius, Hexaplex radix, Tribulus planospira, Pteropurpura centrifuga, Macrocypraea cervinetta, Conus fergusoni, Chicoreus spectrum.

We hope you enjoyed the photographic report of this great event. Undoubtedly, a good opportunity to buy shells personally, often is better than internet (especially if there are expensive or exclusive pieces) since you can see them and make sure of the good quality. Also the shell show is good to make contacts and exchanges between the sellers, getting more variety in the offer.
See you next year!
