I have an advanced collection Cypraeidae & Conidae but I am always looking for nice and variable specimens to add to my collection: dwarfs, giants, colour or pattern-variations, calloused forms, granulated specimens, freaks, etc.etc.
Who can offer something of interest?
Hello Bart I invite you take a look at our cones and cyprae in our ebay shop sea shell section .

Please do send me your comments.

One of the very best source for unusual, rare and exceptional specimens : <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- w -->
Dear Vincent, you have an impressive homepage with very exceptional shells. It was a delight to go through them....
Hello Bart,
have a look at my website: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->

Kind regards,

Hello. I have an extensive collection with a lot of conus & cypraea that I need to sell. There are appr. 90 cypraea and 50 conus.

I can send you a list of what I have and photos. My total collection has appr. 400 species/1550 individual specimens. The entire collection is for sale.

Hope to hear from you.

Hello Bart:

My name is Bruce, and I live in California. I collected as a hobby for about 15 years, along with a few hundred hours logged underwater, so my collection is extensive and I am now selling it in it's entirety - I have about 100 different Cowries sp and about the same Conus sp. I also have an extensive Muricidae collection, and spotty representation from most other families.

Right now I have photo-logged all of the valuable ones (including a few rarities and definitely "of interest" stuff). I will sell items individually.

If you are interested in seeing them, perhaps you can tell me what you'd like me to send and I can do that for you.

Have a great day!
Hello Bruce,

Any Strombidae (strombus, lambis) in your collection you want to sell?

Kind regards,
Dear Bruce,
Is it possible to send a list (or photos) so that I can see what you have to offer? For instance: in your area (California) there only is one Cypraea-species: Cypraea spadicea Swainson. It is very variable, however. I have about a dozen but not one looks alike.
