Notes: 1)  This family is a personal favorite of mine. Like the overly-famed-and-fabled cowries, the basic shape doesn't change too much, but the seemingly endless range of COLORS and PATTERNS, (not to mention sculpture!) mean one virtually never runs out of variations to collect and enjoy (or study!). The local-population sets and series below, therefore, are definitely worthy of consideration (they certainly were fun to put together!!)- so go ahead and try some!!!

          2. UNLIKE the shiny old cowries, there are a lot
more of them!! This means you will never run out of scallop species or variations to collect - there will always be more to hunt down: The adventure never ends!!
