I bought this shell as a Christmas present for Debbie, my wife, who loves curiosities like this.
When I saw it in the gift shop, I thought it would make a good subject to photograph.
This was a mini challenge to light the shell while avoiding reflections and blown highlights.

other sizes: small medium large original
