ARCHITECTONICIDAE
Especially wanted because of the special Architecture of the shell: indeed, the shell obtains its solidity not because of a solid columella, but by the fine construction of heavy spiral and axial ribs and knobs built up around a broad, hollow umbilicus. Because of this special structure, their lips are rarely perfect. The operculum is often special and shells w/o merit a premium. Most species are small and rare.
