Harpa Costata Shell from Mauritius
Hi all first post on this Forum.

I have a small collection of shells from Mauritius and one of these I believe is a Harpa Costata ( Imperial Harp ) but I am not an expert and request any information that can be given to me as to Specimen and Grading for this shell.

Shell was obtained in 1969 off the North West Coast of  Mauritius in aprox 5 Metres of Water following a Cyclone.

Aprox shell Size:  L74mm X W55mm XH35mm
