         Cassis Madagascariensis (Clench Helmet)

        The clench helmet is a subspecies of a much smaller species called the Emperor Helmet. The Emperor Helmet lives in fairly shallow Caribbean Sea waters. The Clench Helmet is very similar in appearance but lives in deep water and grows on the average twice as big as the Emperor Helmet. It is the second largest helmet in the world and fairly hard to obtain in perfect condition as only divers that are willing to go deep enough to retrieve them well bring up the perfect condition shells.

        The gorgeous lamp made from a hand picked collectors Clench Helmet sea shell is both a conversation piece, head turner and work of art all in one.  Created and individually handmade my internationally acclaimed artist and coral conservationist Kevin Haley.

         Tonna Galea

        Tonna galea, commonly known as the giant tun, is a species of marine gastropod mollusc in the family Tonnidae.

        The ventricose shell of adult Tonna galea is very large, with an average height of 6 inches (150 mm). Specimens of this species have been quoted of the size of a man's head. The shell is thin and inflated, but still relatively solid and durable. The shell is almost diaphanous when young; at that time the transverse ribs of the surface are only indicated by lines of a slightly deeper tint. In terms of its weight however, the thin shell is very much lighter than the shell of most other large sea snails. The aperture of the shell is "distinctly round" and wide.
