RE: Old Shell Necklace
Yes I agree with wolfi. These are Cypraea (Monetaria) moneta, (common name "money cowrie") and one Cypraea (Monetaria) caputserpentis (common name "snakehead cowrie)". They are among the commonest cowrie species, and are exported from the Philippines and other western Pacific locations literally by the ton for craftwork, tourist shops, etc. You can buy them in bulk on Ebay or any number of craft supply websites.
