By local collector near rocks and sea grass in the intertidal areaI see no flaws except for a tiny growth mark just next to the dark line running from end to end. Just look at the photos to see the super quality of this very dark shell with very dark orange and brown banding. The other one in this auction has yellow banding. Not easy to obtain this close to perfection specimens
