    Beautiful. My favorite part of a shell is, indeed, the spiral….

  3. Ahh … now there’s one just for me. Did you know that my work and interests, as a graduate student, focused on the molluscs? Although taxonomy and classification weren’t my areas of expertise, this looks like some sort of knobbed or channeled whelk. I can clearly see that it is the embryonic whorl which has degraded first. Either because its calcium content is particularly low or because it is more exposed to abrasion? In either case, the logarithmic spiral has always attracted my attentions. Thanks L for reminding me of this odd fascination of mine!

  7. Love the toughness and the sense of steady ascent – and how you invite us to tiny worlds with big narratives.

  8. Another new insight into something that most glance at in passing and usually take for granted. An excellent reminder.
