COLLECTING SHELLS - IN TIMES OF INTERNET 2016-11-04
Two years ago, watching the conchological activities on the web, I decided that it may be useful for the many newcomers in our field to write a guide on what shell collecting is all about. I saw many collections and photos passing on Facebook and other sites, without any labels for example. A very alarming affair in the eyes of a classic conchologist. I saw prices jumping up and down in crazy frenzy movements: on one auction, a very classic large Corculum cardissa, worth a mere 8 euro sold for over a hundred euro, while a beautiful Conus gloriamaris in the same auction, worth a hundred euro, went for 25 euro?. Definitely something was "unusual" to say the least at that moment.

The photo translates much the joy of this trip that was omnipresent from the start to the final, three days later.
