This is the Arabian Tibia shell, scientific name Tibia insulaechorab, from the northern Indian Ocean. There are half a dozen other species of Tibia. You can find pictures of them by searching "tibia shells".

I am always looking for rocks, fossils, minerals, shells, and things made from these materials from cultures throughout the world.
