    BEAUTIFUL! Even more stunning in person. The seller also got the items in the mail soon after I placed the order on a holiday. The coral was packaged well and there was minimal breakage in the mail. I had asked for photos of other pieces before I decided on these and the seller was very helpful.

    This is a beautiful float and exactly as presented. Shipping was prompt and item was well packed. We have a display with lighting behind several floats and this one is a stunning addition. Thank you Glassballgypsys and Marshes Free Museum from Long Beach, Washington. Well done.

    Two really beautiful and stunning Tiger Cowries!!! Both have a lighter yellowing to the background surface and strong large black spots! The one shell has a strong yellow with red lining for it's mantle line, the other has a lighter red that fades into the color of the surface. The owner Mandy was very helpful in showing a variety of shells for me to choose from !!! The shipping was very fast, service was fantastic, and the shells came very well protected !!!!!
