Jars? yes

an amethyst clam shell

Description:   Its base round and an inch in diameter, an amethyst clam shell has expanded in concentric, 240-degree arcs until it has reached a size of nearly three inches across. The individual purple arcs fluctuate in shade, from a dark royal purple to approaching white, and small, black speckles add variation to the color of the shell.


Rarity:
Average value: 2500
Jars? yes

an angulate wentletrap shell

Description:   Resembling a winding staircase, an angulate wentletrap shell spirals upward in ever-tightening whorls until it reaches a tight, spiked turret. The spirals are not quite round, though, turning sharply at some points and straightening out at others. The lip of the shell's large opening is smooth and rounded, and the shell's interior is a pale, satin white.

Jars? yes

a beige clam shell

Description:   Its base round and an inch in diameter, a beige clam shell has expanded in concentric, 240-degree arcs until it has reached a size of nearly three inches across. The individual beige arcs fluctuate in shade, nearly reaching white at times, and small, dark umber speckles add variation to the color of the shell.


Rarity:
Average value: 125
Jars? no

a black helmet shell

Description:   Shaped similarly to the banded half-globe helmets worn by the dwarven troops, a black helmet shell presents a roughened, grey exterior. A spiral extends off one side of the helmet shape, the spiral making several complete turns before tightening to a point. On the inside, the shell's surface is a smooth coal black, polished to a deep sheen.


Rarity:
Average value: 75
Jars? yes

a black-spined conch shell

Description:   With its large shell, a black-spined conch shell somewhat resembles a piece of tanned leather rolled up, but more loosely on one side than on the other. The larger end sports nasty-looking spikes, including a central spike. Each spike tip is coal black, giving way to tan near the central shell and providing the reason for the shell's name. The wide lip gives a good view of the shell's inside, a bright pink swirled with white.


Rarity:
Average value: 550
Jars? yes

a blue-banded coquina shell

Description:   Evoking the image of an eroded volcano with colored lava flows down its sides, a blue-banded coquina shell is a flattened cone. Bands of dark violet begin at the shell's point and widen out as they descend the roughened surface to the shell's edge. Interestingly, the light tan stripes separating the bands do not change in width at all between the point and edge. Purple areas and white areas swirl together on the shell's inside surface.


Rarity:
Average value: 75
Jars? yes

a bright noble pectin shell

Description:   Hard and fan-shaped, a bright noble pectin shell bulges slightly, as if something was once contained in a pocket on the shell's smooth underside. The raised back displays brilliant yellow rays interspersed with lighter yellow spines. The base, a darker shade of yellow than the rays, would be nearly rectangular were it not for a protrusion, or tail, extending off one side.


Rarity:
Average value: 30
Jars? yes

a blue periwinkle shell

Description:   Cone-shaped and tightly whorled, a blue periwinkle shell's thick spiral is dotted with myriad small, sharp spikes.
