Shiva Eye Seashell, is the protective covering at the opening of the Turban snail shell. Towards the end of the snail's natural life this protective door detaches and sinks to the seabed.
On one side of the Shiva eye shell is a beautiful spiral. The exact shape of the spiral is unique from one shell to the next. The color varies from beige to deep green, depending on the sea snail's diet, while the background always remains a milky white.
On the reverse side of the spiral is a mesh of colors that resembles an eye, which is where the shell's alternate name derives from.
