Olividae is a stunning family of shells belonging to Olivoidea superfamily.
They are very popular as collectable shells because of the extremely brilliant appearance and the unique colors.
Olividae's classification is not easy, because all the species have the same shape, with differences only in color and small details in the shape.
The snails belonging to the Olividae family live buried in the sand, on quiet deep bottoms, and get out only during the night to for small hunting trips.
finding Olividae shells is a very beautiful experience. It seems to extract jewels buried in the sand, some unique sea treasures with unique and shiny colours.
Ancilla genus is probably the most rare  and desired by shells collectors, because they live in deep waters, and some of them are very rare. Mineral Art Gallery's mission is to search and sell collectable quality shells.
