These are always a real treat to find. The word is that it’s always been a big deal to discover the Junonia here on Sanibel Island. The Holy Grail. The very reason shellers come from miles around to stoop in these waters. The one shell to rule them all. Perhaps we’re simply fortunate to have found so many intact specimens and pieces of this spectacular shell.
It’s always the one we look for; the one we always revere as the pinnacle of finds. It’s the centerpiece of our coffee table display. It never gets old finding them, and we hope to find more.
Have you ever found a Junonia?
