Zwar wiederhole ich mich, aber hier handelt ist sich um eine wirkliche Cypraea Rarität, nicht so wie die einstigen Berühmtheiten von Fernost, die heute massenhaft auf den Markt kommen, was mit dem Verbreitungsgebiet zu tun hat, denn diese Art kommt wie die berühmten Zoilas von Albany, WA, Australien, von 25m Tiefe auf Weichschwämmen. Außerdem handelt es sich um riesengroÞes Exemplare in GEM Qualität, was ganz außergewöhnlich is für die Art; vergleichbare Stücke wurden dieses Jahr in Frankreich verkauft; es lohnt sich zum Vergleich nachzuschauen. Ein seltenes und hervorragendes Angebot, beide Stücke gleich schön, das kleinere vielleicht etwas dunkler
