N OLIVE SHELL, GREAT BARRIER REEF

This Oliva bulbosa is more inflated or bulbous than most olives. With a glossy sheen and a great variety of abstract patterns, ribbons, curves and tent shapes, olives are especially attractive.

We are not the first to see a letter in an olive. In the mid-1700s conchologist Dezallier d�Argenville claimed that he could make out three Roman letters on a Pacific specimen of Oliva sayana, shell, called �the Lettered Olive� for its varied design.
