Zoila marginata

A very popular Zoila group having the widest habitat range of all from Dampier on the central coast of Western Australia to Kangaroo Island in South Australia. Collected by divers and trawled by fishing boats from 5 - 250 metres most specimens being collected by divers on sponges and in rock crevices. Forms orientalis, ketyana and ketyana bataviensis are sort after by dedicated cowrie collectors.

Please understand though that 95% of marginatas have faults, ranging from fine growth lines to broken canal tips due to fish bites. A gem marginata is a rare occurence and consequently the price increases dramatically. Of all Zoila this species is the worst for imperfect shells.
