What kind of seashell is this?


Recommended Posts

It's a lettered olive and it took me all of two minutes to find using google search. On top of that, I don't know squat about seashells. 

I suggest you try and do some research on your own before posting here. Besides, this is a rock and mineral forum.

While this seashell is not a rock, or fossil (but it could be if old enough), Nuggetshooter forums has ALWAYS been a educational forum first and foremost, so I think an occasional seashell is OK to post a question about.

That being said, certain types of seashell critters actaully bore holes in rocks, so sorta rock related!!

There are also other sea critters that do the same.

Also a seashell is make up of minerals, so they are minerals, namely calcium carbonate, and as such a seashell in this forum section is not so far offbase after all!!
