As shells go, the Volutes have it ALL (ok – they sometimes aren’t as shiny as certain over – hyped cyp-things!) any color you like, patterns to burn, splendidly variable and attractive shapes, great sculpture in some lucky genera, and quite decent prices to top it all off (the family is currently not as popular as it once was, which is beneficial to those not oozing legal tender!) Most species are gratifyingly variable, making for good, solid sets and pairs which definitely display better than most. So, go ahead, make my day (and yours!) and try some!
