    I was lucky enough to find another of these fascinating shells whilst running along Chulumna beach. They are extremely light and thin, yet always seem to arrive on the beach intact, even through massive swell. They are truly a wonder of engineering in nature from the absolute symmetry, to the materials and constuction to create rigidity.
